1) What Social Security benefit did you apply for?

2) How old were you when you applied for it?

3) How much is your own work record primary insurance amount?

4) How much is your ex's work record primary insurance amount?

5) What makes you think you are not getting a divorced spousal benefit in 2015, but got it in 2014, i.e. what is the change in amount?
