Understanding Social Security and Divorce

Social security options can be a little intimidating at first, but Cathy can help make sense of your options after divorce. If you were married for at least 10 years, you can opt to draw up to 50% of your former spouse’s eligible Social Security payment IF it is larger than your own Social Security payment. You may also opt to draw a small amount from your ex’s Social Security at full retirement age, and then switch to your own full payment at age 70. You may also be eligible for 100% of your former spouse’s social security benefit when they die. After getting to know your specific situation, Cathy will outline the available social security options and help you decide which of them is in your long term best interest.
