Divorced Widow(er) Benefits

If My Ex-Spouse Dies Would I Get A Full Disability Check Off Of His Work Record?

Dear sir, I am receiving an SSI disability check because I was 2 credits short to draw my SSDI. I am 55. I get $793 a month.My ex and I were married for 18 years when I became disabled and he divorced me. We have been divorced for 12 years and I have not remarried. If my ex who is 63 died would I then be able to get a full disability check off of his work record without waiting until I am at retirement age?

Can I Claim Benefits From My Ex-Husband's Record And Leave My Benefit To Age 70?

I am a divorced for many years single person with some health issues. I cannot afford to be out of work in order to apply for disability and I am 64 years old born in July 1956. I was married for almost 11 years and am wondering if I can take the spousal benefit and leave my benefit until I am 70. I am still working but it is getting more difficult to get up every day and drive into another state to work. I am trying to find another job closer to home but so far no luck. I am just wondering what is my best course. My exhusband also passed in 2006.
