Q:  I am 62 and am divorced after a marriage that lasted 15 years.  Can I receive benefits on my former husband’s record, even though he is still working?

A:  As long as your marriage lasted 10 consecutive years and you are still unmarried, you can qualify for a divorced spouse’s benefit on your former husband’s record at any time after reaching age 62.  The fact that your husband hasn’t started receiving Social Security benefits doesn’t matter if he is at least age 62 and your divorce has been final for at least two years.
