I started my benefits when I was 62. I am collecting as a divorced spouse, we were married 32 years. I was told at the time that my benefit would always be a total of his and mine to equal 1/2 of what he was entitled to. He was living in Charlotte, NC and I was living in the Boston, MA area. The North Carolina SS office was the one who gave me the info since he was living there. I was under the impression that when my ex reached retirement age I would be entitled to 1/2 of what ever he was entitled to at 66. I am now being told that the only time my benefit will change is if we get a cost of living and if I am still working and adding to my personal social security because I chose to take my Social Security early. I'm a bit confused. What am I really entitled to???
