I am now retired and wondering if I can get SS derivative benefits

Customer Question

I am now retired and wondering if I can get SS derivative benefits from my ex-husband, but I don't have his SSN. I was married to him for 19-1/2 years. I have not remarried, although he has. I live in California. Can you get his SSN information for me? Thank you.

Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.This is a public forum, I can answer questions related to spousal or other socials security benefits but I cannot give or look up for you his social security number. And you will not find his social security numbers online because of identity theft concerns. If you still have marriage and divorce certificate you may want to try SSA, they may be able to look it up for you.

I am sorry but distributing, publishing or selling social security numbers is considered a crime. I will let customer service know.

I understand the identity fraud possibility, but there should be some way to get vital infomation. The irs can't help me because i need tax records from 1986. I guess I'm screwed out of benefts. Yes please confirm my trial membership has been cancelled.
