Since October my wife and I are collecting SS - she a spousal benefit and me a full benefit (age 68.5). We were both born pre-1954. The benefits values are as expected but I'm curious about her online benefit statement. Nowhere do I see the term "spousal", just "You are entitled to monthly benefits as a dependent of the wage earner". Is this correct? The application process was a bit rocky and I want to avoid any issues when she eventually applies for her own age 70 benefit.
