Can I collect social security from a prior spouse, if I remarried when I was 58?

Can social security collect student debt from my social security benefit?

Hi,

You couldn't qualify for either divorced spousal benefits or surviving divorced spousal benefits if you remarried at age 58 and your marriage is continuing. However, if you were already drawing disability benefits as a surviving divorced spouse when you remarried at age 58, the remarriage wouldn't terminate your benefits.

And yes, Social Security benefits can potentially be garnished in order to collect a federal student loan debt.
