Hello and welcome to Just Answer. For over 32 years, I have answered questions just like yours. And I look forward to assisting you. As a former spouse, you are entitled to receive one half of what your ex receives. but it only makes sense if his one half is higher than what you already receive. so it sounds like your earnings would still be more as you cannot combine benefits. Sorry. Rarely does the SSA gets it right but it appears that this time they did. thanks for understanding.

I wish you well.
