WSUS is only showing updates needed for the desktop PCs once a month. They're all Windows 7 and I used to see patches more often. WSUS server and services have been restarted. WSUS says synchronization was successful with a recent date.

How can I verify I'm getting all released patches from MS?

you are missing a wide array of information.
how frequently does the WSUS set to check for updates.
check whether you have one or it is a replica and your upstream server is having an issue.
check the products/classifcication settings in the configuration

there is only one wsus server for the domain. It checks nightly.
All products are selected as usual.

Maybe there is a place online showing what I should be receiving?

ping a workstation, and login as admin, then use the windows update and query the MS update directly and see whether it offers updates that your WSUS is not offering.
