Default Survivor benefits and WEP

If I start my UK pension it will be very small, less than 300 pounds per month and based on my deceased spouses earnings. Will that affect any social security I would get from the USA.

Thanks all

If you have less than 30 years in US SS I believe the windfall elimination comes in.

Hardly worth bothering with as it would be less than 300 pounds.
