    I am 59 and worked for 29 years until I became disabled in 1999 and began collecting Social Security Disability benefits. My ex-spouse, to whom I was married for 14 years, is turning 62 this month. Years after we divorced, I got remarried to a man 10 years my junior so he is presently 49. Is it possible for me to collect social security benefits through my former husband now rather than having to wait until I'm 62?

    Hey, Scooter. Happy New Year...........

    Now, the bad news. Probably not. First, you've remarried to someone other than your former spouse. Next, even if you had not done so, you're still too young.

    Go to SSA.gov, keyword divorce.
