If she is going to collect a spousal benefit under your earnings record, and her full retirement age is 66, then she should be eligible for 50% of your full retirement benefit at your full retirement age. So, for example if the figure you quoted for your benefit is based upon starting your benefits at an age beyond your full retirement age, then she would not receive 50% of that benefit. If you began collecting benefits sometime after reaching full retirement age, then your full retirement age benefit would be something less, as your benefit is increased by approximately 8% a year (8% pro-rated by month over 12 months) when you defer starting to collect your benefits beyond your full retirement age.
