Answer: SSI (Supplemental Security Income) is a different program from standard Social Security Retirement benefits. In order to qualify for SSI, the applicant themselves generally must be (1) more than 65 years old, or (2) blind, or (3) disabled, and have low income in addition to one of those factors. http://www.ssa.gov/dibplan/#a0=0&sb=3 To obtain Social Security Retirement benefits from a divorced spouse, you generally must, (1) not have remarried, (2) be 62 years old or older, (3) your ex-spouse must be entitled to retirement or disability benefits, and (4) the ex-spouse’s entitlement to benefits must be greater than your own. Furthermore, the marriage must have lasted longer than 10 years.
