BruceM, thanks for the reply. I am now confident that my wife will receive my current benefit in its entirety when I pass on. That was the reason that I waited until age 70 to start receiving it in the first place.
By the way, I did take advantage of the spousal benefits when I reached my full retirement age of 66. I received half of my wife’s benefit until I reached age 70 and then I took my full benefit.
I appreciate you taking the time to respond to this post.
