To determine if you have any other SS benefits to which you may be eligible, additional questions are necessary because you didn't include all pertinent information to determine what your answer is.
If you would like an accurate answer, please be willing to provide answers to the questions.
Now that I know you are both collecting on your respective work records, now I know that we should look to see if there are records of others you could potentially be eligible for. It is not very common, but it does happen at times.
Did you and your wife marry after age 60 or before age 60?
