Hi from just answer. I'mCustomer and can assist. It sounds like you are eligible for a surviving spouse's benefit due to your length of marriage. http://socialsecurity.gov/planners/survivors/onyourown2.html is the link to the SSA survivor benefits planner. http://socialsecurity.gov/planners/survivors/onyourown3.html covers the subject and qualifications for a surviving divorced spouse. Note you will have to apply in person for these benefits, and produce proof of marriage and other documents. Thanks for asking at Just Answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'mCustomer
