Am I Entitled To Some Benefits If My Ex-Husband Is On Disability?

My ex husband has been on disability for 18 years. We were married for 12. Am I entitled to some benefits also?

Hi,

Possibly, but in order to qualify for divorced spousal benefits you'd need to a) be unmarried and b) either be at least age 62 or have a child in your care who is eligible for child's benefits on your ex's record and who is disabled or under age 16.
