Am I Entitled To Survivor Benefits From My Ex-Husband?

My ex-husband is collecting off my social Security Benefit, he says! In our divorce I wouldn't' touch his Retirement Plan!!! Am I entitled to his Survivors Benefits?

Hi,

Well, potentially. He would have to be deceased, of course, and you would have to meet all of the other requirements for surviving divorced spousal benefits: https://www.ssa.gov/planners/survivors/ifyou3.html.
