While at full retirement age 66 and working full time, I applied for and received SS benefits from my ex-spouse (living). Then, 6 months later, I retired and changed over to collect SS from my own account. Now, SS is billing me for the full amount I collected from my ex-spouse SS , the 6 monthly benefit payments and the 6 month retroactive benefit.
I had the understanding this was a recommended path to follow so my own SS would increase. The local SS office maintains they are due all monies from my ex-spouse's SS.
