I am receiving Social Security disability benefits. Is my wife eligible for spousal benefits?

En español | If you are receiving Social Security disability benefits, your wife will be able to receive benefits as a spouse provided she is at least 62 years old or is taking care of your minor or disabled child.  However, if you are not receiving benefits, she will not be able to receive any unless she is eligible based on her own earnings.
