You will be entitled to your spousal benefit which is one half of what your ex will receive. To find out that amount, you needs his SS # and need to go to any SS office with a copy of your divorce papers. With that information, the SS agent will be able to look up your former husband's record and advise you of the amount you will receive. Note, you can apply for your spousal benefit as early as 90 days before he retires.
