    There may not be any, sorry. 40 is considered young.
    What is your living situation at the moment, both a roof over your head, and financial assistance or savings, and do you have any minor children?

    There is a social security spousal benefit for those who were married for more than 10 years. I don't know about the rest of the details, such as any age requirement. Everyone I know who got it was contacted by SS. You could call the SS near you, or look at You could look for the city social worker in the blue pages.
