Ask Social Security Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
As soon as you are married you are eligible for the spousal benefits. There's no waiting period. The same apply for the surviving/widow benefits.
However, if you divorce, to qualify for the ex-spouse benefits, you would need to be married for at least 10 years.
