Hi from just answer.Customerhere.The idea works, but the benefit is not paid in addition to her benefit, but instead of her benefit.If eligible, her benefit would be half of yours, but that's less than what her own benefit is.You're better off with her claiming as she is. Thanks for asking at just answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'mCustomer
