Ask Social Security Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is ***** ***** my goal here is to provide you with the most complete and accurate answer possible.
You can visit the Social Security Administration's website at http://www.ssa.gov/forms/ssa-2.html to apply for spousal benefits. In addition this page http://www.ssa.gov/planners/retire/applying6.html#&a0=0 discusses benefits that spouses are entitled to. Social Security generally pay the higher of the spousal benefit or benefits based upon their own earnings record.
I hope this answers your question. Please let me know if I can clarify anything or answer any additional questions. Thanks, Jonathan
