Hello:

My wife will be taking spousal benefits off of my record since she does not qualify on her own. My questions is, do spousal benefits increase with the annual COLA (if any) as my benefits will? Thank you!!!

Hi,

Yes, Social Security cost of living increases (COLA) apply to spousal benefits the same as all other Social Security benefits.
