Do I Qualify For Benefits On My Ex's Record?

Larry,
I was married to my ex husband for 9 years and 8 months. He remarried (twice), one wife died, the other is living. He died recently, do I qualify for his benefits?

Hi,

If your divorce was final before you had been married for 10 years, you couldn't qualify for survivor benefits on your ex's record unless you have an eligible child of his in your care.

Best, Jerry
