Yes, under certain circumstances. If you are the spouse or ex-spouse (married at least 10 years) of a worker who has earned at least 40 social security work credits, you would… qualify for "spousal benefits" equaling 50% of your husband's or wife's retirement payment. You can only receive retirement benefits if you are at least 62 years old and your spouse has applied for his or her own benefits. The widow, widower, or ex-spouse (if married at least 10 years) of a qualifying worker may receive survivors' benefits as early as age 60 for retirement, or age 50 for disability. You may collect benefits at any age if you are caring for the decedent's minor children under age 16. If you don't qualify for regular Social Security benefits, you may be eligible to receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) if you are at least 65 years old or disabled. SSI is means-tested assistance for people with no or low income and few assets. For more information, see Sources and Related Links, below.
Yes, under certain circumstances. If you are at least 62 years old, you can draw spousal benefits of up to 50% of your qualifying living spouse's monthly entitlement, but your… spouse must retire or already be retired before you become eligible for benefits. If the working spouse has reached full retirement age and would like to remain working, he or she may elect to file for benefits, then suspend his or her portion in order to continue accumulating delayed retirement credits. If you have not yet reached full retirement age (65 for people born before 1943; 66 for those born between 1943 and 1954), your benefit will be reduced and will continue to be paid at the reduced rate for as long as you draw Social Security. Once you begin receiving benefits under a spouse's work record, you cannot earn more than $14,160 per year without receiving a temporary reduction of $1.00 for each $2.00 earned over the annual limit. This cap is lifted the month you reach full retirement age. If you are eligible to draw benefits against your own work record, Social Security will check both of your records and pay your benefits based on the one that generates the higher monthly check. Ex-spouses may also qualify for social security retirement benefits, if married to the worker for at least ten years. This does not affect the amount of your, or your spouse's, benefits. You will become eligible to enroll in Medicare at age 65 on the basis of your living or deceased spouse's work record.

Maximum Social Security Benefit 2007Social Security incomeSocial Security is based on a sliding scale depending on your income, how long you work and at what age you retire. S…ocial Security benefits can automatically increase each year based on increases in the Consumer Price Index. Including a spouse increases your Social Security benefits by 1.5 times your individual estimated benefit. Please note that this calculator assumes that you have only one working spouse. Benefits could be different if your spouse worked and earned a benefit higher than one half of your benefit. If you are a married couple, and both spouses work, you may need to run the calculation twice - once for each spouse and their respective income. This calculator provides only an estimate of your benefits. The calculations use the 2007 FICA income limit of $97,500 with an annual maximum Social Security benefit of $25,392 per year for a single person and 1.5 times this amount for a married couple. To receive the maximum benefit would require earning the maximum FICA salary for nearly your entire career. You would also need to begin receiving benefits at your full retirement age of 66 or 67 (depending on your birthdate). Your actual benefit may be lower or higher depending on your work history and the complete compensation rules used by Social Security.
