Does spousal Social Security benefits reduce my benefits?
Benefits paid to your spouse will not decrease your retirement benefit. In fact, the value of the benefits they may receive, added to your own, may help you decide if taking your benefits sooner may be more advantageous.
Can I draw Social Security off my ex husband if I remarry?
To be eligible to claim on your ex-spouse’s Social Security benefits, whereby you receive up to half of their benefit amount, you must have been married at least 10 years and be at least 62 years of age. “If you get remarried, generally you can’t collect on the benefits of your former spouse.”
What is the maximum Social Security benefit for a divorced spouse?
The marriage must have lasted for at least 10 years, and the divorced spouse must be at least 62 years old. If the requirements are met, the divorced spouse can receive an amount equal to as much as 50% of their ex’s benefits.
Can my ex wife claim my pension if I remarry?
Yes, they can unless you have both signed a financial consent order following the divorce that states otherwise. Your ex-partner can claim for your pension after your divorce, especially if there is no signed and agreed financial agreement in place.
Can current wife and ex wife collect Social Security?

Is my ex wife entitled to my Social Security if she remarries?
You are required to report changes in marital status to Social Security. If your ex-spouse is deceased, you can remarry and continue collecting survivor benefits on his or her earnings record, as long as you were 60 or older when you remarried (50 or older if you are disabled).

Can my ex-wife claim my pension if I remarry?
Will my Social Security change if I get divorced?
Benefits for a divorced spouse are calculated independently from those of a current spouse, so your benefit won’t be affected if your spouse remarries. However, if you remarry, then you generally can’t collect benefits on your ex-spouse’s record unless your current marriage ends.
How do I find out my ex husband’s Social Security benefits?
A representative at your local Social Security office can provide estimates of the benefit you can receive as a divorced spouse, based on your former wife’s or husband’s earnings record. Call Social Security at 800-772-1213 to make an appointment.
How much of my retirement is my ex-wife entitled to?
In terms of how much either spouse is entitled to, the general rule is to divide pension benefits earned during the course of the marriage right down the middle. Though that means your spouse would be able to claim half your pension, they are limited to what was earned during the course of the marriage.
