Since you are age 64, you will file for your benefits first. Then SS will look up your exhusbands record and see if his Full Benefit Amount is more than double yours.
If it is, then you will get some from his account. When someone receives disability, it is like getting their full amount early. You would need your marriage and divorce papers to prove that you were married for 10 years. Carol
