Does my ex-husband have to have my social security number in order for him to file for his benefits?
We have been divorced for almost 23 years. He will be 62 this July. He told me he had applied online, and it did ask for the former spouse's social security number. Is this a new requirement? I use my last 4 digits of my social security number as passcodes for various things. If he has my social security number he will have access to my passcodes!! I told him to give my name and address and that they could look me up. I have a most unusual name anyway. What should I do? I am only 59, I will not be 62 until September 2011. .I live comfortably off my investments. He and I were married over 10 years by the way.
