Default US SS- UK Pension

Does anyone know if drawing USA social security will have any impact on my UK gov pension when I reach 65. My US wife has the required 40 credits and is drawing her US SS. Although I don't qualify for for US SS because of insufficient credits I am able to qualify as her spouse and now at the age of 62 can apply.

Grateful of any comments.

It will not effect your UK pension, however the UK pension might effect your social security. Search Windfall Elimination Tax. I think if your wife has the full 40 credits you will be OK, but you need to research this for yourself.
