Procedure in Social Security that sets the benefit level for a dependent of a retired or disabled person who is receiving Social Security benefits. For example, if a retired or disabled worker has a spouse over age 65, the spouse is entitled to a benefit that is 50% of that paid to the primary recipient. This benefit is also available to dependent children. Further, the spouse can elect to take a reduced benefit if he or she is between ages 62 and 65.
