If You Are Divorced!

An Excerpt from the Social Security Administration Pamphlet: Understanding The Benefits

If you are divorced, your ex-spouse may be eligible for survivors benefits on your record when you die.

He or she must:

  • Be at least 60 years old (or 50 if disabled) and have been married to you for at least 10 years; or
  • Be any age if he or she is caring for a child who is eligible for benefits based on your work; and
  • Not be eligible for an equal or higher benefit based on his or her own work; and
  • Not be currently married, unless the remarriage occurred after age 60 or after age 50 if disabled.

Note: If your ex-spouse remarries after 60, he or she may be eligible for Social Security benefits based both on your work and the new spouse's work, whichever is higher.

For more information on Social Security benefits, contact your local Social Security Administration Office or visit their website at www.socialsecurity.gov.
