I have been divorced since 1986 and have never married since

Customer Question

I have been divorced since 1986 and have never married since the divorce. I actually started receiving Social Security in 2010 (when I was 62). Because I did not work my whole life, my present Social Security payment is $939.90, less $104.90 for Medicare. I am interested in possibly filing for "Spousal Benefits Only" (with me receiving the bill to pay my Medicare Part B), but I need to know if I would be receiving less money than I am now? My Ex- lives in Texas, if that makes any difference. I know (even though he never shared it with me) that my Ex- always made more money than I did (which I'm sure he does now).
