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 are you today?
After you remarried, you can no longer draw social security benefits off your first husband's earnings record.
If your husband is to die, you will draw benefits off of his record. Your benefit would be equal to his full benefit - so, to answer your question, no, the amount would not be lower than what you are drawing now - it would be double.
Please let me know if you need anything additional, and please rate my response as "excellent" so that I may receive credit for assisting you today.
If my second husband and I divorced , could I draw my first husband benefits?
If I divorce my second husband will be eligible for my first husband's benefits?
Yes, you could - and I must apologize, if your husband dies you can also draw off your first husband as well. I'm sorry for that miscommunication. You can verify what I am telling you on social security's website, HERE
