Hello and and thank you for your question. For over 34 years, I have answered questions just like yours. And I look forward to assisting you.

If you were married for ten years or more, and do not remarry before age 60, you are entitled to one half of what are your husband's benefits. This is known as your former spousal benefit. However, that amount is offset if you are still working and under age 66. Specifically, until you are 66, there is an earnings cap as to how much you can earn and collect SS. And that limit is approximately $14000 per year. So in your case, your income would wipe out your former spousal benefit.
