Hi. If your wife is age 68, then she can't qualify for Social Security disability (SSDI) benefits. SSDI benefits can only be paid up to when a person reaches full retirement age (FRA), at which time their SSDI benefits convert to regular Social Security retirement benefits.

People who are under FRA and want to apply for Social Security benefits can do so online at Social Security's website:
