Can I get spousal retirement Social Security benefits?
We were married for 18 years, and divorced four years ago.
Neither of us has remarried. I'm now 65, my ex is 53.
Can I get spousal retirement benefits (based upon the earnings of the ex) now,
or must I wait until my ex reaches age 62?
Thanks.

From my reading, I don't think you can until the ex is eligible for benefits.

This correct. OP, your ex has to be at least age 62.
