people may leave money on the table what is happening for them. >> reporter: three-quarters of the divorce people say they didn't necessity details of how to claim social security on their x's record. here are the rules. you have to be married for ten years before you got divorced. you must currently be single that includes being widowed. presuming you meet these requirements you can claim within half of your ex's spouses benefit as long as it is bigger than your full benefit. here's good news claiming your ex's benefit does not require contacting him or her that can be dicey. diminish, awkward, exactly. nor does it diminish the ex's benefit. for more on americans failing grade on social security, go to jill on money, and, really confusing. >> no kidding. >> can you imagine that phone call with your ex about those benefits. >> exactly. >> we don't speak. >> jill, thanks very much. well to day is deadline
