Ask Social Security Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
As long both of you are 62 or older and you are not married (or did not remarry before 60), than yes, you may switch to spousal benefits, if higher than your own. Spousal benefits (benefits based on your ex spouse's records) could be as much as 50% of your ex spouse's benefits.
You have to contact the social security at 1-***-***-**** or visit your local social security office. You will need your marriage and divorce certificate to prove that you were married for at least 10 years. A social security agent can access your ex spouse's records to determine your spousal benefits.
