Im disabled on ssa Im 61. I receive my check on the 3rd each

This answer was rated:

I'm disabled on ssa I'm 61. I receive my check on the 3rd each month. My wife will be 65 on Dec. 1st 2013. Can she get spousal benefit on my ssa record?

Customer:

I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to help you better understand your options.

Customer:

How are you today?

Customer:

As you are currently drawing a social security benefit, your wife can draw a spousal benefit off your record any time after she reaches the age of 62

Customer:

She can draw at age 65, although her benefit will be more like 45% of your benefit, not the full 50%

Customer:

She gets the full 50% if she waits until full retirement age to begin her benefit
