Hi,

You can't file for disability benefits on the record of a current or former spouse who is living, but if you've worked long enough to be insured for disability benefits on your own record, it would likely be advantageous for you to apply for disability benefits if you have an impairment that prevents you from working. For more information on disability benefits, refer to Social Security's website: https://www.ssa.gov/disabilityssi/.
