AARP's Social Security Q&A Tool

How can I tell if my former spouse is collecting a benefit on my Social Security record? If they are, will it affect me when I retire at 65?

En español | Since there will be no effect on your benefits or the benefits of your current spouse if your ex-spouse is receiving benefits on your work record, the Social Security Administration will not release that information to you.
