Social Security Divorce Planner

Filed in Tax, Savings by on March 9, 2011

Here is a Social Security Divorce Planner.

After a divorce, a spouse can get Social Security benefits on her former spose’s Social Security record, if the marriage lasted at least 10 years. She must be 62 or older and unmarried to collect. This will have no effect on the benefits he or she gets or the amount of benefits you or your current spouse can get.

If you and your ex-spouse have been divorced for at least two years and you and your ex-spouse are at least 62, the ex-spouse can get benefits even if the other party is not retired. Therefore, a good Social Security divorce planner will stay married 10 years.
