Can I draw ss from both of my ex husband's ss,they are both still alive


No, at least not at the same time. If you qualify and file for benefits on the record of more than one ex-spouse, you could only be paid the higher of the benefit rates.

You could, however, potentially draw benefits on more than one ex's record at different times. For example, if one of your ex-spouses is eligible for benefits before the other you may be able to draw on that ex's record for a while and then switch to the other ex's record at a later date. You may want to strongly consider using our software ( to check out all of your possible options in order to determine your optimal filing strategy.
