Hi, you're getttong close ...Even if you have never worked under Social Security, you may be able to get spouse’s retirement benefits if you are at least 62 years of age and your spouse is receiving retirement or disability benefits..Also, you can receive the spouse's benefit no matter what your age is if you are caring for his or her child who is also receiving benefits..You can read more about this here: You can also qualify for Medicare at age 65. .Let me now if you have questions ...
