I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
You asked: I TOOK SS AT AGE 62,MY WIFE ALSO RETIRED AT 62.I'M CURRENTLY RECEIVING $1455 ,SHE IS RECEIVING $301..I'M 77 AND SHE IS 75.SHE ALSO WORKED FOR THE CITY OF BOSTON.HER PENSION IS $433. ARE WE ENTITLED TO MORE?
There is probably nothing to gain by your wife seeking to switch to a spouse benefit at this time. A spouse benefit is limited to just 50% of what you first received at age 62 when you first retired, and then from that 50% social security will then deduct about $200 because of her Boston pension.
Based on the cost of living increases you have had in the past 15 years, I can estimate that if your wife switches to a spouse benefit, she would receive a spouse benefit of only about $250.00 per month---less than what she is already receiving.
It does not appear that you are entitled to more social security benefits. I am sorry.
