independently divorced spouse benefit, approved, then denied. we divorced 12/2017, I was FRA, she was 7 months shy of FRA. I spoke to someone at SSA who said that because we were both eligible for benefits in the month before divorce, the 2-years divorced waiting period wold not apply, and received an email stating this, so I applied. 3 weeks later when I called I was told application had been approved and should receive a letter shortly.
Divorced Spousal Benefits
I am 62 in September. I was married over 10 years. He is 6 years younger. Can I start collecting off him under spousal benefits? And can I start collecting when I turn 62? Or do I have to wait till he filess for social security before I can collect from him? Do I get to draw from his earning now or just the years I was married to him? Could you please explain ? Thank you , Sabrina

If your ex is living, the earliest that you could potentially qualify for divorced spousal benefits is at age 62. If your ex is deceased, then you may qualify for disabled survivor benefits now if you meet all of the requirements: https://www.ssa.gov/OP_Home/handbook/handbook.04/handbook-0403.html.
For me to get my retirement + ex spouse, one needs to be 10 years in marriage.
My question is 9 years and 10 months does not qualify? I guess I am really lucky?
I started receiving SSDI benefits at age 58; I am now 67 and retired. My husband, who I am in the process of divorcing after 15 years, just retired at age 66. Can I collect on his retirement even though I received SSDI benefits? I was told by a financial advisor that I cannot unless he dies. Please confirm. Thank you.
