Your ex-wife cannot be drawing disability benefits on your record; the only disability benefits an ex-wife can draw are on her own record, or that of her deceased husband. In either of those cases, her benefits do not affect those of your current family.

I might add that your ex-spouse can often draw retirement benefits on your record.

I am 60, divorced since 1980, and am on SSDI, from childhood polio. I will be 62 in 2006. My ex is also on SSDI at age 63, for the same reason. Is there a way I can receive part of his SSDI as a disabled spouse after a 15 year marriage???? I have been receiving full benefit SSDI after 40 credits since 1998 after a stroke which left me deaf, in addition to the other problems. I have not remarried nor has he. If I DO remarry, will I lose any benefits I receive from his SSDI??

Not as long as he is alive, married to him or not. There are no disability benefits for anyone based on a spouse's record unless the spouse is deceased. Same for ex-spouses.

But you can receive retirement on his record, once he and you both get to retirement age and retire. Your benefit amount on his record is half of his, and you will get whichever is bigger, his or yours, so, very roughly, his will only benefit you if he made twice as much as you did.

If you do remarry you risk loss of any benefits you would get under his record, but you stand to eventually gain benefits under your new husband's record.

I say "risk" because you don't always lose benefits by remarriage. If you are worried about it, sit down with a lawyer before you tie the knot.

You can get benefits as a disabled, surviving ex-spouse if you are 60, or 50 and become disabled within 7 years of his death, or within 7 years of the last payment to you of survivor's benefits as the mother of his child.

my husband wants a divorce and I'm on disability.
I need to know what benefits are there for me for buying a home and other benefits for me afer a divorce. We've been married for 34 years. Ive been devastated over this, which in turn messes with my immune system. He says he's tired of my illineses. I'm tired of his adultries.

I cannot really answer this question. I am good at getting people on disability, but you are already there. I do not know much about the other benefits you might get, if any, from the Family Court or from other sources. Talk to a Family Court lawyer. I am sorry to hear about your situation.

I realize that my ex spouse is entitled to benefits upon my death provided she has not remarried at the time of filing...and provided we were married for 10 years. My question is: does this have to be 10 consecutive years? (We were marrid for 3 yrs....divorsed for 2 yrs...remarried for 8 yrs....and divorsed a second time).

Daylor, that is a question I have never thought of before. She might apply just to see, and I am not certain, but I would guess that she cannot: the statute says that she must have been "married to the insured for at least 10 years immediately before your divorce became final." 20 CFR 404.336.

If your husband or ex-husband is living, you cannot draw disability benefits on his record.

I signed up for disability and was denied. It is about to go to an appeal. I am 59. I was married for over 19 years and had 3 children with him. We divorced several years ago. He remarried. I remarried. He died over a year ago. My children and his parents want me to sign up for his social security. Will I be eligible to draw from his record if I win the appeal? Or should I continue under my own record? And if I draw under his record will that have any effect on his widow drawing from him when she becomes of eligible age?

Q. Will I be eligible to draw from his record if I win the appeal?

A. If you are presently married, you cannot draw benefits on his record. If you become divorced, you probably can. There are some complex rules that will sometimes enable a married person to draw on a prior spouse's record that I will not go into at this point, for complicated reasons. Anyone who is reading this should not assume this conclusion applies to them!



Q. Or should I continue under my own record?

A. Of course you should, whatever happens with his.

Q. And if I draw under his record will that have any effect on his widow drawing from him when she becomes of eligible age?

A. No. This wise rule was probably created to keep the difficulties between spouse and ex-spouse to a minimum.

Hello,

I'm writing from California. I have been bedridden and disabled for 16 years with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I am divorced and recieve a court ordered spousal support amount which is barely enough to live on as half of it goes to my mortgage alone.

I have basicaly gone without medical care now for many years as my share of cost with medi-cal (California Medicaid) is too much for me to afford. A social worker I spoke with suggested I apply for SSDI on my ex spouses record. We were married for 25 years but he is still working and not retired and we are both in our late fifties. Before becoming disabled I never worked and was a homemaker and raised our two children.

Is there any way for me to recive SSDI benefits?

THank You

Sherry, there well might be some sort of assistance for you under California or some other sort of Federal law that I don't know about. I assume that you are getting some SSI. To get Social Security on your ex-husband's record, you would have to be 62 to get retirement, or he would have to be deceased, for you to get Social Security Widow's benefits, as being over 50 and disabled; there are a few other requirements for widow's benefits.

Take care.

My father recently passed away and was the only income earner for he and my mother. All of their children are grown and out of the house.
My father died at 61, my mother is currently 56 and has not worked in about 7 years and so does not qualify for the regular Social Security Disability.

She has been overweight for most of her adult life, currently around 350 lbs with bad knees and cant walk more than 40 feet without getting winded and we are hoping that will be enough to get her on SSI.

I have 2 questions:

1) If she does get on SSI, will she be able to draw the widow's benefit in addition to the SSI? Or will she have to take one or the other?

2) If for whatever reason she does not qualify for SSI or SSD, is there any way she can still be declared a disabled widow so that she can receive the widow's benefit?

Mr. Smith:

) If she does get on SSI, will she be able to draw the widow's benefit in addition to the SSI? Or will she have to take one or the other?

A. She must file for the widow's benefit; it will reduce SSI dollar for dollar after a $20 exclusion.

2) If for whatever reason she does not qualify for SSI or SSD, is there any way she can still be declared a disabled widow so that she can receive the widow's benefit?

A. Yes, if she can show she is disabled. She has to show she is over 50, disabled, and was married to your father for a year. She will get 72.5% of his benefit amount.

I was married almost 30 years. My ex-wife has been disabled for last 15 years of our marriage. I am 61 and she is 62. Question: can she collect any benefit from my record now - or does she have to wait until I retire or die? She was a housewife for 30 years and has no (very little) personal Social Security benefits. I pay her $4970 per month court ordered maintenance and she is entitled to about 40% of my pension when I retire in April 2009.

Mr. Foley:
Not now; you have to die or turn 62, and she does have to be unmarried, probably.

She does not have to wait til you retire. She would if you were married.

I am 56 years old and my ex-husband just passed away in February and I was told that I was eligible to draw his widows benefits since I was his first wife and we also had 3 Sons but one is now deceased and the other two are grown. Is it true that I am able to draw widows benefits???
Thank you...

If you are not presently married, and if you were married to him long enough, which you must have been with 3 sons, yes; go apply if you are disabled and became so within 7 years of his death or you last mother's check; or apply when you are 60 (not 62) if not for widow's retirement benefits.

I have a friend that is currently receiving SSD. She is also getting food stamps and her medications. Her ex husband died last year and she was divorced from him 20 years ago. She never remarried. Anyway, if she is eligible for his SSI benefits, will her own be affected, like not having her food stams and medical needs?

I don't know about state benefits, and I don't think you are usually worse off as far as food stamps are concerned. The one way I know of you can lose in that situation is if your Social Security disability check makes you too rich for Medicaid, which is a number of free prescriptions each month. For some people this is a catastrophic problem.

On above note: Can the state (Ohio) take away food stamps and meds due to her possible increase in SSD from ex husband. In other words put her at a disadvantage over what she gets now?

i am 64yrs this month, i have collected on my social security since 62. presently married. I contacted s.s. and ask how i could get old records on my exspouses.was told precedure.sent for first husbands mariage and divorce found marriage not divorce. contacted social security was told that they could run a state wide search,they did this came up with nothing. was told by social security that i was still married to him since no records were found for divorce. went to a lawyer and found out i needed an annullment from present husband to clear up my history and to make every thing in my life legal. did so . recieved checks on my first deceased husband. later was sent letter stating i was not his spouse that i had remarried before age 60. appealed stating that i had annulled from present husband. appeal came back all information on denial of appeal was all wrong. supervisor from local s.s. office resent appeal to payment center stating all was wrong. still ate the payment center waiting for answer. they are now saying that social security looks at annullment differently ,that my intent was that i was divorced so i got married thinking iwas divorced . does not make sense. i thought all laws were the same for all people. thank you my question is anullment the same for all .very confused and they are going to collect back payment and keep my check for one year to pay back and overpayment that they told me i was intittled too.WOW! hard to explain

Angela, this is an excellent question! Certainly hire a lawyer, and a good one. Remarrying before age 60 can cause permanent forfeiture of certain benefits, but what "annul" means is to have a declaration that there was no marriage in the first place. I don't know of a provision in the Social Security law that contradicts this, but I am afraid to say there isn't one; I would have to research that question.

How can I find my ex-husbands social security number having lost it through moving and we are not on speaking terms. I need to know his number in order to collect half of his social security-we are both in our 70s.

Anonymous,I am embarased to admit that I do not know if the Administration will let you file without one. You might just go down and try.

If they don't let you, you might talk to a private investigator or maybe try http://www.publicpeoplefinder.com/Get-SSN.shtml. Take care.

Ohio.I was married for 31 yrs.My Ex was dx with cancer last yr.He is on Disability and received his check this month.I am on SSI.The case worker gave the Ex one week to file a motion.He owes $10,795 in arrearages to me.At the time of divorce, he agreed to pay $1000 a month.He receives $1000 a month from Disability.He has filed for modification.The man has lied about his living expenses.Next year I turn 62.I can file on his Social.My concern is that I will only get $450 to $500.How much money will they give to me out of his check? What about the arrearages? What per cent will be taken out?My concern is the money situation next year at 62.He has his own place to live.I can't even afford that.I have been shoved off from one adult child to another.Next year I will no longer have medicaid and will have to pay for my own meds and Doctor appointments.I know that my Ex will find something to do.He will not sit home twenty-four seven.He always finds work "under" the table.

I couldn't write everything but my Ex put himself in debt $90,000 after the Divorce and cheated by working and collecting unemployment.I didn't get any money for 12 weeks.At the Divorce I had to make concessions.The Court seemed to be favoring him.I got stuck paying $30,000 in medical bills and I wasn't even working.I have Graves,Lupus,Sjogren's,Fibromyalgia,Pulmonary Fibrosis,and dx with Clinical Depression along with bulging discs.It seemed like I was "racking" up one disease after another,probably due to all the stress.Thanks for your time

Q. How much money will they give to me out of his check?

A. When you retire, if you are not remarried and you and he were married long enough, you can either draw on your record or his, whichever will be higher. If you draw on his, you will draw one half of what he would draw under the same circumstances.

Q. What about the arrearages?

A. I don't know there are any in a Social Security claim. I am not sure what you mean.

Q. What per cent will be taken out? Again, I am not sure what you mean. Taken out of what? Sorry I can't be more helpful.

When we go to court next month,the Court must decide how much to take from my Ex's Disability check towards my spousal support.A Social Security Disability Check can be garnished for spousal arrearages and spousal support.The State of Ohio took 65% from his check.I was told by the case worker that the Court can modify that,even if it is the state law.He wants to modify my spousal support.I did not work enough in the marriage that is why I am on SSI.I know that I can apply on my Ex's Social next year and no I am not remarried.I hope the Court allows enough so that next year I can combine the two together.It is not fun being on SSI.

Your question is mostly a family law one, and I don't address those generally, but I will say the obvious: when a couple who is broke seperates, they then have to pay for two refrigerators, two stoves, two apartments, etc., and they are going to be very broke.

Often if you are on SSI, you will also qualify for Section 8 housing, food stamps, etc. Be sure to check for those.

I was married 12 years. We went before a judge with no lawyers for our divorce. My husband kept everything from me as far as our finances. I really knew nothing about pentions at the time. So when the Judge ask me if I wanted part of his pention I said no. Not knowing what I Gave up. Is there anyway I can get part of his pention now that he is retired? I was very young and controled by this man.

I was married for twenty years. We had a disabled child. Thus I stayed home. We divorced but never separated. I am 9 years older than my ex spouse. I am 65 and disabled. I have to pay for my part A Medicare. Is there any way that I can get disability.

I found out I will not be getting back pay. Because, my husband's income all these years. So, May 1st. My SSI starts. Is this fair? I've been out of work since May 2000

I was married to my ex for almost 16 yrs. We have two sons. We've been divorced for 26 years. I was always a homemaker due to heart problems since childhood. We both remarried but my husband died in 1999. I am 59 yrs old and on permanent disability drawing on my deceased husband's social security.
My ex plans on retiring in Feb. 2007 when he turns 62. Will I also be eligible for benefits from his social security retirement? If so, do I have to wait until I am 60? Thanks!

My husband is 46 years old. He has signed up for disibility for his back. He has been turned down 3 times already but his lawyer is still working on his case. Our youngest child is 17. My husband packed up and walked out on us a few months ago. My question is: If his disibility goes through is our son and myself entitled to any payments or backpay? How would I find out if he gets it, because his lawyer won't discuss it with me?
