Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

At what age she started receiving her benefits?

If she applied for her benefits at 65 or later (full retirement age) she will get 100% of what you will be getting at the time of your death. However, if she applied before her full retirement age she will get between 75% and 99% depending how early she applied.
