Am I misreading your answer.>>

I can't speak to your wife's case as I don't know the specifics; however, you may read about what happens in the actual year of retirement on the SSA website at in the booklet "How Work Affects Your Benefits." If she didn't work in April through December, then regardless of what she made through March she should have received full benefits for those months. OTOH, if she did work, then last year she was limited to an income of $1,292 per month before the forfeiture kicked in.
