Welcome to the site. I'mCustomer and will be helping you today.
Spousal benefits are typically claimed against a living spouse's work record.
Survivor benefits are widow benefits, typically 100% of the benefit of the predeceased spouse.
Divorced benefits are similar to survivor benefits if you qualify.
Please advise which you might be eligible for, and I will assist.
