Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
Can you rephrase your question? Are you asking about widow benefits or ex spouse benefits?
Since you were married to him for 11 years, you may be eligible for benefits based on his records if you are at least 62, your ex was eligible (he was 66 or older) or was receiving social security benefits and you are currently unmarried: divorced, single, widow.
Also, your spousal benefits must be higher than you own benefits.
