Divorced Spousal Benefits

Can My Friend Continue To Collect Disability Payments And Also Collect Part Of Her Ex-Husband's SS?

My friend is disabled and receives disability payments (for over 25 years). She was married more than 10 years in her thirties. She has been divorced for many years. She is 62. Her ex is older than she is. Can she continue to collect her disability payments (which are meager) and also collect part of her ex-husband's SS since she was his spouse for more than ten years? She has no other income and is not married now.

Hi,

Can My Friend Still Get Divorced Spousal Benefits If She Remarried Her Ex And The Remarriage Only Lasted 2 Years?

I am asking for a friend. She is age 68. Wife was previously married to "Bob" for over 10 years. Bob and wife divorced and remarried but now two years later are getting a divorce. Can she still get Bob's social security based on their prior 10 +year marriage or will she lose Bob's social security because her second marriage to him was for only 2 years?

Hi !
I am divorced . Married more than 10 yrs . I am 60 yrs now . Ex-husband 62 .He social security higher than me . AT this time my SS early 62 at
$ 660 . My ex husband at 62 yrs at $2200 , when he 66 at $2500 . Can you show me how to calculate how much i will get at age 62 yrs.

Thank you so much

Hi,

Your figures can't be entirely accurate, because if your ex-husband's benefit rate at age 66 was $2500 his age 62 rate would only be around $1833.

Hi,

Your ex would have to be at least age 62 or drawing Social Security disability (SSDI) benefits in order for you to potentially qualify for divorced spousal benefits on his record.

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.

Can I Claim As A Divorced Spouse At 62 If My Ex-Spouse Is Also 62?

I am on SSDi. I wish to get off it as i want to leave the states and i am not a citizen. Can i claim as divorced spouse at 62 if spouse is also 62?

Hi,

You couldn't voluntarily quit drawing Social Security disability (SSDI) benefits and draw divorced spousal benefits instead, nor would that necessarily enable you to receive your benefits outside of the U.S. You could theoretically switch to drawing regular Social Security retirement benefits instead of SSDI, but that would likely just cut your net benefit rate by around 25%.
