Am I entitled to any of my deceased ex-husband's social security survivor benefit?
Unfortunately, no, you will not be entitled to apply for survivor benefits
on his work record.
"Generally, we cannot pay benefits if the divorced spouse remarries someone other than the former spouse...A person can receive benefits as a surviving divorced spouse on the Social Security record of a former spouse who died fully insured, if he or she:
If the surviving divorced spouse age 60 or over applying for benefits remarried after age 60
- Is at least age 60, or age 50 and disabled;
- Was married to the former spouse for at least 10 years; and
- Is not entitled to a higher Social Security benefit on his or her own record.
, or after age 50 and at the time of remarriage was entitled to disability benefits, we disregard the marriage. ..."
Hope this helps explain.
