Dannenbaum Law Firm, PLLC

Social Security And Divorce

If you are married for 10 years or longer, the lower-earning spouse is entitled to social security benefits on the higher earning spouse's record. These benefits do not impact or lower the higher earning spouse's social security payments. Therefore, it is critical to determine the length of the marriage if you are approaching 10 years. Waiting 10 years before getting divorced will guarantee increased retirement benefits for the lower-earning spouse without reducing the higher earning spouse's benefits.
