Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
Your wife's spousal benefits are her benefits, not yours. You are receiving your own benefits. She can collect only one type of benefits at the time. If her disability benefits are higher than spousal benefits, she can choose the higher disability benefits. She cannot collect both benefits, disability and caregiver at the same time.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
