Social Security spousal benefits

Article

Understand how Social Security spousal benefits work.

A: Your ex-wife can collect Social Security spousal benefits as long as you were married for at least 10 years, she is now unmarried, she is 62 years old or older, and the benefits she is entitled to receive on her own work record are less than the benefits she is receiving based on your work record. The amount of benefits your divorced spouse receives has no effect on the level of benefits you or a future spouse may receive.
