Is My Wife Eligible Even If She's Not A U.S. Citizen?

I'm about to collect social security benefits. Is my non-resident Canadian citizen spouse eligible for benefits based on my contribution.

Hi,

Yes, provided that she meets all of the eligibility requirements, such as age (at least 62) and marriage duration (at least 1 year).

Best, Jerry
