Thanks for your question, and I'm so sorry to hear about your wife's ailment. Unfortunately due to her age, there is no disability available to you. You can only draw retirement or disability, both are the same but disability is for younger people who are not yet eligible for retirement. So, unfortunately the answer to your question is no -- no further benefits are available. Please let me know if you need anything additional. If not, please rate positive.
