Divorced Spousal Benefits

Can I Qualify For Benefits On Either Of My Ex's Records?

I am getting ready to turn 60 I know I can't draw till at least 62. I was married twice to the same guy. Those marriages lasted Less Than 3 years each (approximately 6 yrs total.) I remarried, that marriage lasted less than 4 years. I've never remarried. When I turn 62 can I draw on either one of my husband's Social Security? right now they are both alive but I think they are disabled I'm not sure how would I find that out. Please help. Thank you for your time.

Hi,

How Would A Remarriage Affect My Benefits?

If I remarry, could that lower the amount of my social security retirement check, as compared to if I remained single? Does my age at the time of remarrying, also affect my benefit amount? I am 59, my ex spouse worked and earned less than I did during the course of our 20 year marriage, and my current boyfriend has been steadily employed his entire adult life and makes about twice as much as I do. Lastly, would my ex spouse benefit in any way from my remarrying?

Hi Joanna,

Can My Wife Get Medicare Coverage Based On My Work History?

Dear Larry,
I am now an immigrant with greencard. I plan to divorce soon. I and my wife have a marriage of more than 40 years. I have been earning SS credits since I got green card. I am 71 years old and my wife 72. I can have 40 SS credits in 2021 to meet the SS credit requirements in order to enjoy medicare as ordinary American seniors. My question is if my wife ( divorced status in 2021 ) can enjoy the medicare as I because of our 40 year marriage ?
Thank you.
