Divorced Spousal Benefits

Am I Missing Something?

In my divorce settlement it was calculated by the judge that I will receive $2,000 from SS per month at age 62 (I am forced to take it at 62 as required by the decree). My former husband has paid the maximum over the last 10+ years. I will be 62 in 2028. And I am assured that this SS at 62 for 2,000 combined with another 1,000 by my ex, that I will receive, at minimum, 3,000 per month. Since this is all that I can expect to live on, this is quite important to me. I was completely dependent on him as I stayed home to raise our kids.

If I Don't Remarry Will I Be Able To Collect A Divorced Spousal Benefit In Addition To My Own Benefit?

If I don't remarry, will I be allowed to collect a spousal benefit at age 66 and 10 months, in addition to my Social Security retirement benefit?

Same question but what if I wait until I'm 70 or 72?

Does My Ex-Wife Continue Receiving The Money She Got Before Our Divorce?

I am on disability, my children receive benefits, my ex wife does as well. Social security agent told me she got caretaker benefits no spousal. I got divorced last year and was granted full custody of the children. I am now their representative payee. Does my ex wife continue receiving the money she got before? Or does she lose the benefits and the amount she was getting split and given to my 2 children?


Why Was I Not Allowed To Take Social Security Off Of My Ex-Husband?

Hi! I went into the Social Security office in April 2015 at age 63. I specifically asked the representative if I could collect off of my ex-spouses SS since we had been married over 10 years. She told me that because he was on SS disability I did not qualify to receive any monies from his SS. I ended up having to take an early retirement because of health issues and 3 years later was SS disability for myself.

When Can I Start Drawing As An Ex-Spouse If I'm Disabled?

I am 58 and my husband is 66. He is thinking about retiring within the next two years, and we are divorcing within the next year. I am disabled and have received SSDI for the past 12 years. From what I understand, I can draw off of my spouse's retirement benefits as a survivor at an earlier age if I am disabled, but when can I start drawing off of his benefits as an ex spouse if I am disabled? My current SSDI benefits are less than $700 a month because I spent more of my life raising children and tending to the household instead of working outside of the home.
