My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.
Yes you can receive social security through your ex spouse. From the Social security website: https://ssa.gov/planners/retire/divspouse.html
"Your benefit as a divorced spouse is equal to one-half of your ex-spouse's full retirement amount (or disability benefit) if you start receiving benefits at your full retirement age." Your benefits would be reduced as full retirement age is 66 if you take it at this point. See link for calculating your benefit: https://www.ssa.gov/OACT/quickcalc/spouse.html
See language for Social Security on the issue:
"If you are the divorced spouse of a worker who dies, you could get benefits just the same as a widow or widower, provided that your marriage lasted 10 years or more."
For requirements see Social Security website: https://www.socialsecurity.gov/planners/survivors/ifyou2.html
"If you are the widow or widower of a person who worked long enough under Social Security, you can:
(1) receive full benefits at full retirement age for survivors or reduced benefits as early as age 60.
(2) begin receiving benefits as early as age 50 if you are disabled AND the disability started before or within seven years of the worker's death.
A widow, widower or surviving divorced spouse cannot apply online for survivors benefits. If you wish to apply for disability benefits as a survivor, contact Social Security at 1-***-***-**** to request an appointment."
