Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
You can receive your own benefits or spousal benefits, but not both. Your spousal benefits can be based on your current spouse's records or ex-spouse records. Your spousal benefits equal to 50% of your spouse's benefit minus certain adjustments. So if your own benefits are higher than your spousal, you keep your benefits. If your spousal benefits are higher than your own, you can claim spousal benefits.
Just for clarification, spousal and spouse's benefits is not the same.
Spousal benefits are your benefits based on your spouse's records
Spouse's benefits are what your spouse receive.
It doesn't make any difference. At age you are receiving regular SS benefits, not disability.
At full retirement age social security disability is automatically switched to regular social security benefits. No, you cannot get disability benefits because you are past your full retirement age.
