Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

You can apply for an ex-spouse benefit by either applying online, or by calling or going to your local social security office. You will need a copy of your marriage license, your divorce decree and both of your social security numbers. Here is a link that explains this process:
