Unless you are actually divorced, and I am only guessing here, it would seem that he has the same rights that any other spouse has under the Social Security law. You really should makie it official and divorce your spouse, which under the circumstances should be relatively inexpensive. Speak to a lawyer. Many lawyers will handle a no-fault divorce for $200 or less plus filing fees. Check on the internet or Craig's List for a lawyer in your area.
