I (wife) took my social security at 62. My husband took his at 70. What percentage of his would I get if he dies first?

Accountant's Assistant: The Retirement Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

Great!

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Retirement Accountant should know?

My husband has Alzheimers. Is it possible for me to get any more from social security before he dies?
