AARP's Social Security Q&A Tool

I have two former husbands. I was widowed from the first and divorced from the second. Can I claim benefits on the record of either former spouse?

En español |  Once divorced you will be able to collect benefits from either your first or second husband as long as the marriage lasted at least 10 years. Social Security will give you a benefit based on whichever spouse's earnings provides the highest benefit.
