Show:
No, his wife is not entitled to his social security check. If they divorce, it is possible that a judge could order a portion of his income be paid to her as part of settlement, but it is very unlikely.

As his wife, however, she does have certain spousal rights. You are wise to get the power of attorney as soon as is possible.
