Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you. If you ex is single he may be eligible for spousal benefits. How much it will depends on his work records, his social security credits, his age and when he applies for the benefits. If he applies early, he will get higher of his own or spousal benefits.

Ok- she has very little work history and is on s.s.disability already and has not remarried. I took a early retirement at 62 and she's only 60 if that makes any difference.

As soon as she is 62 she can apply for spousal benefits. She will be eligible for about 30% your benefits if she apply at 62, 50% if she wait until full retirement age. She will receive higher of 100% of hers or 30 - 50% of yours, depending on when she applies.
