If you have been married for one year or more, you are potentially entitled to draw
spousal benefits when you reach age sixty-two or more. Your spouse must be receiving
Social Security retirement benefits. Your retirement benefits must be less than 50 percent
of your spouse’s full retirement benefits. If your retirement benefits are worth more, you
would get your retirement benefits instead of spousal benefits. Maximum spousal benefits
are equal to 50 percent of your spouse’s retirement benefits.
