Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
You would need to contact the Social Security Administration and provide information about your spouse - proof of marriage and SSN - so they will verify your spousal benefits.As a spouse - you are entitled for social security benefits based on your spouse's working record - that generally will be 50% of what your spouse is entitled.
As you started benefits at 62 (before your FRA) - your spousal benefits will be reduced as well.
If you qualify for benefits on your own record, the SSA will pay that amount first. If the benefit on your spouse’s record is higher, you'll get an additional amount on your spouse’s record so that the combination of benefits equals that higher amount.
