Divorced Spousal Benefits
Hi, I am almost 62. My Ex-spouse is 67. We were married for more than 10 years and I have not re-married. If I apply now (& suspend? or apply with a restricted app?) for divorced spousal benefits, what are the ramifications?
Thanks for your advice.
My sister will be eligible for divorced spousal benefits. She would like to start at 62, due to low income, and her former spouse is the same age. Her FRA is 67. I believe she can still file a restricted divorced spousal benefit application. Her income is about 30K, so I am unsure if her monthly benefit will decrease the month she hits the 17040 income limit or is that decrease figured differently?
I retired at 62 because of anxiety, etc. My ex-husband (married 19 yrs) turned 62 two months ago. Can I go back and collect off his SS? He is still working.
I will be 65 in March 2019. I started to take Social Security Jan. 2018. I was married 25 years to an Orthopaedic Surgeon. Presently I am getting an additional an approx. $300/mo from that marriage to my $717.00/mo Social Secuity check. I was recently told I should be getting more(half of my ex-spouses S.S. benefits). Is that true? I am retired and from the my assests and investments getting $3,500.00/mo. If I am due more from my Ex-spouses S.S. benefits how can I apply for it? I was never given this information when I signed up for benefits at my my local S.S.
I was married for 16 years and then got divorced. Then I remarried and was widowed we were married for 10 years I think or maybe a little more then he passed away from cancer I get a Widow's pension for about $1,500 a month. I was just wondering my ex-husband is still living but retired he's 70 am I entitled to part of his pension?
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.
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?
My ex started drawing his S.S at 62 since then he has received several COLAS he is now 74 and his S.S. is much more than when he started to draw it. When I file for spousal bennefits will the amount I receive include the COLAS or the reduced amount only?
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
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.
