SSI plus SS benefits

I am 62 years old and receive SSI. I was married for 31 years but have been divorced for 15. My ex husband says I can file for his SS benefits. Can I receive both SSI AND his SS benefits at the same time? I only receive $674 a month right now, plus $74 in food stamps and Medicaid. I dont want to lose my SSI or Medicaid benefits if I do file on his Social Security. Any information would be appreciated. I live in Texas.

Good Article on Social Security Benefits for Divorced People

This is a good article which outlines Social Security benefits for divorced people. The article refers to "divorced women", but it also applies to divorced men (especially if the woman had higher earnings).

Excerpt :

The law says a divorced woman, who was married to her ex-husband for a minimum of 10 years, is due essentially the same benefits as a woman who is currently married to her husband.
