How old are you please?

OK,great, yes, once you are old enough to be retirement age in the eyes of the SS law (which is generally 62 for reduced early benefits, or 66-67 for full/normal retirement age), with a marriage as long as you had, you will be eligible for divorced spousal benefits, should you want them.
