Can I Get Benefits On My Husband's Record If We Were Married Nine Years And Six Months?

If I was married for 9 years and 6 months am I entitled to my husband's Social Security or his army pension disability?

Hi,

I don't know about your husband's army pension, but assuming you're divorced and your divorce was final before you had been married for 10 years, you can't get divorced spousal benefits on your ex's Social Security record (https://www.ssa.gov/planners/retire/divspouse.html).
