Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
Hi from just answer. I'm PDtax, and will assist.
When you apply for social security, either on your work record or his as a divorced ex, you should do it at an SSA office. They can do the calculation there and you can apply for the superior benefit.
You can apply online if you wish. I will post the link.
I don't know if you are collecting benefits now or not, but the application process considers any benefit you might be eligible for and pays that first. Then, if your divorce benefit is greater, that is added to any payout you qualify for on your own work record.
Thanks for asking at just answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'm PDtax.
