I am newly divorced after a marriage of 34 years. I’m 54 and on SSDI and my ex-spouse is 59 (still working) My question is… can I draw on my spouses Social Security now since I’m disabled, or do I have to wait until he’s 67? How do I find out how much his Social Security will be? If he passes away am I able to receive 100% of his Social Security or still only half?
Divorced Spousal Benefits
I am 76 and have been retired since 1998. When I turned 62 I applied for early social security and received Just under $200.00 a month and over the years it was increased to just over $200.00. The benefit is small because I was working and contributing to a PERA fund for 30 years. As you know people under PERA were not able to contribute to social security after 1980. I was married for 20 years to my ex spouse. Divorced in 2004. She was 12 years younger but contributed to social security and has continued to work. She is now 65.
How do I know if I should be claiming benefits under my ex-husband rather than my own. He made much more money than I did and we were legally married over 10 years.
Hello Larry, I was married for 23 years, divorced, received nothing from my husband and I continued to raise my children on my own till they moved from home. I continued to work till 58. Moved in with my daughter because she wanted me to live with her and husband in Japan.
My ex husband whom I was married to for 13 years draws 2100 disability social security and I’m only going to draw 800 how much can I receive from ex husband I’m 62
I have a question I hope you can answer. I married about 4 years ago. My spouse and I reached our FRA in late 2020 and I filed for SS based on my record. My spouse filed for spousal benefits on my record. My question is, will my spouse lose her spousal benefits if we get a divorce now? Does the 10-year rule apply if you're already collecting spousal benefits when you get divorced? Thanks, Johnny

I'm 65 years old and newly divorced after 18 years of marriage. My ex is also 65, and my PIA is less than half of his. Do I need to wait two years until I'm eligible to apply for ex-spouse benefits? If I apply for benefits now, will I only receive benefits based on my own wage history? If so, then when I become eligible for the divorced spousal benefit in two years when I'm 67, will SSA automatically increase my benefit to 50% of my ex's PIA, or do I need to apply for that?
I was married fir 11 years to my first husband and 16 years to my 2nd husband. At this tim I do not qualify for my own SS. How do I choose which one to file on? If one should pass away, will my benefit’s increase to his full amount. Also , how do I find out how much they are receiving now ? Thank you , sheri

My name is Deanne. I will be 65 years old on December 16th. I was born in 1957.
During my 25 years of marriage, I was physically and verbally abused by my husband at that time. He was arrested on 1 occasion, he went to jail, he went to court and was found guilty. I have a copy of the police report. I personally have over 40 credits on my own work record and qualify for social security. I have not taken my benefits on my work record yet.
