You can make an appointment at your local social security office and they will run through all the numbers and scenarios with you (as long as you have both social security numbers). My mom and my xMIL both did that to help them make sure they knew what their options were.

Thank you for all responses.

Yet another good thing to come out of my recent divorce is that I am quickly learning to make shrewd financial choices and ask questions while in my previous life I left macro financial decision planning to my ex husband.

This new autonomy applies in all areas and it feels good.....finally the buck stops with me.

Suze Orman has a book called Women and Money.
Get it from the library, don't buy it

Keep in mind that the ss office very often isn't correct.
I know from personal experience.
