Thank You for this opportunity.
Younger earning spouse 56 and Older non working spouse 62.
I am the sole provider and have been for many years. My wife has turned 62 not able to work and I am 56 still working.
Is She able to qualify for some or part of my benefits?
You site looks really interesting and I appreciate this amazing resource.
Andy.

Hi Andy,

Sorry I can't give you better news, but your wife won't be eligible for spousal benefits until you start drawing your benefits (https://www.ssa.gov/planners/retire/yourspouse.html).

Best, Jerry
