So I have a wife and a daughter, they asked me if my wife wanted benefits and explained that the 1125 my daughter would get would just be split between my wife and daughter... which makes no sense.
But I have to give a letter to SSA saying my wife wants any benefitss she's entitled to to go to our daughter, and she acknowledges that she is giving up her benefits.

Does anyone know exactly what's supposed to be in this letter or is there a form I can download?
Any help would be appreciated.

It's not the worst idea to have your wife collect her portion.  If you plan to save a some of the benefits, then the portion in your daughter's name needs to be returned to SS when she turns 18, and then SS will give the amount back to her. 

She might be responsible at 18, or she might not.

Yes but doesn't that limit the amount my wife can make? if my wife say gets a job and makes 20K a year then i wouldn't get it right?

If i understand you correctly yes she gets it until she 18, but then are you saying the portion my daughter got say 583 or whatever 50% is of the $1127 would all go to my wife? So after our daughter turns 18 then she gets all the $1127?

Your wife is eligible for benefits until your daughter turns 16. At that time, the amount your wife receives will be aided to what your daughter receives. Your wife cannot make SGA and continue receive monthly benefits. Your daughter also cannot make SGA and receive monthly beenfits.  If your wife or daughter make over SGA that only affects their benefits, not yours.

So I decided to go to SSA today with all the info I could think they would want and had my wife on standby at home in case they asked for something I didn't have (since I live not even a half mile from the field office) so the telephone interview I was supposed to have on April 10 would have been a waste since they needed my marriage license, my daughters birth certificate,  a copy of my 2015 tax return since I was self employed, before my spine got the better of me. Now my wife runs the business and income that showed up for me should have been hers so I need to amend the return.
Good news, all my paperwork is done all being sent to Baltimore tonight to start processing payment. THANK GOD...just went I was almost tapped. 
So it had nothing to do with SSI and I figure I shaved a better part of a week of my processing time not waiting to the 10th.
Can I get an Amen  Main09 lol

What do you mean send back to the ALJ?  Do you mean your decision letter went from the writers to the ALJ on 3/30?  It can go back & forth multiple times depending on how much editing is needed.

It being sent back to the ALJ doesn't mean much. As Helper stated, it can go back to the writers and back to the ALJ many times. When the ALJ finds errors, he has to send it back to the writers.

SSDI eligibility is based on work credits.  SSI is essentially welfare for the disabled and has income and asset restrictions.

Perhaps you misheard?  Or the ALJ set your Established Onset Date to after your Date Last Insured expired.

Do you know when your Date Last Insured is?  If the ALJ found you disabled after your DLI, you would only be eligible for SSI.

For SSI, you have to meet the asset & income requirements.  If you are married, your spouse's  income is counted.
