Older, Lower Earning Spouse

Recommended Posts

My spouse is older than I and started to draw her benefit based on her work history at age 62.  This is smaller than her expected spousal benefit. When I take my benefit at full retirement age of 67 and she applies for spousal benefit shortly thereafter, will her benefit be 50% or a reduced amount because she took her own benefit before her full retirement age?
