Hello, In most cases as long as you are remarried and you married before the age of 60 you would not be entitled to your ex-husbands benefit. If you are no longer married or remarried after 60 and were married to your ex-husband for at least 10 years you would be entitled to your benefit or his benefit whichever is greater.
