A question we hear often is, can I collect my spouse’s Social Security benefits after divorce?
If you’re divorced, you can receive benefits on your ex-spouse’s record, even if they’ve remarried, if:
Your marriage lasted 10 years or longer, you’re not married and you’re 62 years or older.
Also, your benefit based on your own work must be less than the benefit you would receive based on your ex-spouse’s work.
If you start your divorced spouse benefit at full retirement age, the amount will be half of your ex-spouse’s full retirement amount.
The benefits don’t include any delayed retirement credits your ex-spouse might receive.
