Divorce and Division of Social Security Benefits

Social Security benefits are not divisible in divorce. If you were in a marriage that lasted ten or more years, you may want to consider whether you can benefit from receiving Social Security spousal benefits. You may apply to the Social Security Administration for spousal benefits when you turn 62. You are responsible for applying for the benefit, as no action will automatically be taken on your behalf.

Benefits taken before full retirement age are reduced. The spousal benefit will be roughly 50% of the higher wage earner’s benefit.  If your own actual earned benefit is greater than the benefit of your former spouse, only that will be paid. 


Spousal benefits are available regardless whether the other spouse is receiving Social Security payments. Receiving a Social Security spousal benefit does not decrease any other pension that you may be receive. Social Security spousal benefits will be reduced by any applicable earnings limit for current employment. 


You can learn more about Social Security spousal benefits by contacting the Social Security Administration:



This post does not constitute legal advice. Social Security guidelines change and the accuracy of this post or how you should plan your own retirement strategy should be discussed with your attorney, financial planner or Social Security Administration counselor.

    1. These days, around half of all marriages end in divorce.

      That’s a pretty sad statistic… especially because so many of those divorces are preventable.

      In reality, many marriages end prematurely. Why? Well, there are two reasons.

      Neither spouse knows how to prevent the passion, intimacy, and romantic connection from gradually fading away.
      They make the 3 “Marriage Murdering Mistakes” that very few people know about… and sadly, these 3 mistakes can quickly drive your marriage into disaster and divorce.
      If you’re in this situation…

      If your marriage is dead-as-a-doornail…

      If you’re heading towards divorce, or even if you’re already at that point…

      Then a new video by marriage coach Brad Browning will show you how to stop the downward spiral and breathe some life back into your relationship. (Brad’s a freakin’ genius, by the way.)

      =>Begin Repairing Your Marriage *Today* <=

      I wish I could force every couple experiencing a marriage crisis to watch this new video… because the strategies Brad reveals in it are extremely powerful and might be the difference between “unhappily divorced” and “happily ever after”.

      The best part is that you can apply the techniques described in his video on your own… without your wife even being aware that you’re making an effort to save the marriage.

      So don’t lose hope just because your partner refuses to attend marriage counselling, or won’t put in the effort to fix the problems that are slowly eating away at your marriage.

      Watch the video now by clicking here: Transform Your Marriage in Minutes<=

      There’s no catch to this, and no marketing gimmicks… just a complimentary in-depth guide to saving your marriage.

      At the very least, you should watch the first few minutes where Brad reveals the 3 ‘Marriage Murdering Mistakes’… these 3 massive myths alone are a huge reason why nearly half of all marriages end in divorce.

      Don’t give up on love yet. Take action today and begin re-building your marriage… start by clicking the link below to watch the video now.

      ==> Fix Your Marriage – Start Making HAPPY Memories<==

      The techniques in the video have already worked for hundreds of married couples…. and they’ll work for you, too. What are you waiting for?

      Here’s to a happy, healthy, and long-lasting marriage!

      Talk to you soon,

  3. My husband and i got Married last year and we have been living happily for a while. We used to be free with everything and never kept any secret from each other until recently everything changed when he got a new Job in NewYork 2 months ago. He has been avoiding my calls and told me he is working,i got suspicious when i saw a comment of a woman on his Facebook Picture and the way he replied her. I asked my husband about it and he told me that she is co-worker in his organization,We had a big argument and he has not been picking my calls,this went on for long until one day i decided to notify my friend about this and that was how she introduced me to Mr James(Worldcyberhackers@gmail.com) a Private Investigator  who helped her when she was having issues with her Husband. I never believed he could do it but until i gave him my husbands Mobile phone number. He proved to me by hacking into my husbands phone. where i found so many evidence and  proof in his Text messages, Emails and pictures that my husband has an affairs with another woman.i have sent all the evidence to our lawyer. I just want to thank Mr James for helping me because i have all the evidence and proof for my lawyer,I Feel so sad about infidelity.

  6. My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in July, but I always wanted to get back together with him, and he was never sure, because the Love was not there anymore. So I thought it was about time I make him sure! All it took was a visit to this spell casters website www.fastsolutiontemple.com the month of August, This spell caster requested for a specific love spell for me and my husband, and i accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. within 24 hours after this spell caster worked for me,  my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds.My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr. Nkosi for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: fastsolutiontemples26@gmail.com or Email: drnkosifastspell@yahoo.com watsap+27820502562 Dr Nkosi
