En español | If you are receiving Social Security Disability benefits, your wife will be able to receive benefits as a spouse provided she is age 62 or over, or if she is taking care of a child entitled on your record who is under age 16 or disabled. However, if you are not receiving benefits, she will not be able to receive any unless she is eligible based on her own earnings.
