Wife on husband’s Social Security switching to her own and more

I have a 77 year old client who has a 66 year old wife who is not working. They are before the 1954 cut off for SS. They are currently receiving his $2800 per month and she is getting half $1380 per month and still working. They want to know what happens when she retires. Does she continue to get his half? Or does she just get her full? Will he ever get her half? They think they are grandfathered in due to date of birth.
