A worker is entitled to a non-Totalization benefit with a primary insurance amount
(PIA) of $250. The worker’s spouse is entitled to a Totalization benefit on their
own SSN with a pro rata PIA of $140. Consequently, the worker's spouse cannot be entitled
to a non-Totalization spouse’s benefit on the worker's SSN. However, an application
for spouse’s benefits should be taken to establish entitlement to premium-free HI
on the worker's SSN. The spouse’s claim would be processed as a technical entitlement
with HI involved.
