If you filed and suspended your benefits - your spouse became eligible for spousal benefits based on your working record - that is regardless if you suspended your benefits.She may start benefits NOW - before Apr 30 - and later when she will reach her full retirement age will be eligible to file a restricted application - to receive ONLY spousal benefits - that will allow her benefits to grow till age 70.
