Ask a Social Security Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to help you better understand your options.
How old are you, and is husband A still living?
I am 59 y/o. Ex-husband is 64
So he's still alive?
yes he is.
The reason I ask, is because if he is deceased, you can get a benefit starting at age 50 if you are disabled
However, as he is still alive the earliest you could draw a benefit would be age 62
And your benefit would be equal to approximately 35% of his benefit. Your benefit would be a full 50% of his benefit if you drew it at age 66 instead.
Ok, but I have been divorced from husband "A" for about 10 years. When I do reach age 62 and obtain benefits, what happens if I marry another man. Would those benefits cease or continue with husband "B" ?
Yes, if you remarried you would lose those benefits from husband A, but you could pick up benefits off Husband B
So are the soc. sec benefits called SSDI ? or just SSI ?
They are called social security retirement.
SSDI is something different, and you can't draw an SSDI benefit off someone else's record
SSI is for those who have no income and virtually no assets
