Thank you for your question.

Typically, if you are drawing off your own record, you are getting the most you can possibly get. However, if you have an ex spouse or spouse you may be entitled to 1/2 of their benefit if they are living, and their full benefit if they are deceased. However, this would be instead of, not in addition to, your own benefit.

Please let me know if you need anything additional. If not, please rate positive.
