My ex-spouse (ex) and I were married to each other for over 10 years, and neither one of us has re-married. We have both earned enough credits to qualify for Soc/Sec benefits. I am 3 years older than ex, and am entitled to a greater benefit amount than ex. Question:
If I pass away, can ex collect upon reaching age 60, and if so, what percentage of my amount?
Also, can anyone point me to a SSA document which explains ex-spousal benefits.
