Types of Social Security Benefits for Married Couples

Social Security offers three distinct types of benefits for retired workers and/or their spouses:

  1. Retired Worker benefit, which is based on his or her own earnings record.
  2. Spousal Benefit, which provides a worker’s spouse with a benefit once the worker has claimed his own benefit.
  3. Survivor Benefit, which provides a surviving spouse with a benefit after a worker’s death.
