Anyway, there are three ways to apply for social security benefits. You can visit your local office, call social security directly or start an online application. You will eventually need to provide your marriage certificate and divorce decree so applying at your local office would be probably the best.

It does not matter where he lives, as long as both of you are 62 or older you may qualify for benefits based on his records. But if you apply for benefits before your full retirement age you will automatically receive the highest benefits available to you at this time: your own or spousal.
