Thank you for your question. Yes, she would get a survivor benefit from you at her full retirement age, if it is larger than her own benefit. If your benefit is equal to or less than what she gets on her own account there would be no additional payment made to her.

She would not get benefits before retirement age -- unfortunately.

Please let me know if you need anything additional. If not, please rate positive.
