My wife started drawing Soc Sec benefits on my credit at age of 63. Birthday is Sept ,1942.
I started drawing at 64. Birthday is Dec , 1936.
If I die before her, what will she draw?

Hi,

If your wife currently receives spousal benefits on your record, she would receive the higher monthly rate that you were receiving in the event of your death.
