My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.

Yes, as long as your husband is electing to receive his social security benefit and you are at an appropriate age (at least 62 with decreased benefits up to age 66 with full benefits), you can receive 50% of your spouse's benefit or your benefit, whichever is higher.

Please let me know if you have any further questions and please positively rate my answer as it is the only way I will be compensated for my time by the site.
