In Response to Spouse's Benefit:
My wife turned 62 in Aug 2012 her estimated benefit is $350. She did not file for benefits because she wants to wait until I retire in Aug 2014. How much will the extra 2 years increase her monthly benefit?

Social Securrity Office can give you the exact numbers and that is who you should contact but the difference will not be much.
Here's the SSA website that you can use to get an estimate:
