I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to provide you with excellent service, and help you better understand your options.
How are you today?
The 10 year rule is only for ex spouse benefits....you only have to be married for 9 months to get benefits while you are currently married to someone.
However, if you are divorced, you can only draw a benefit off your ex spouse if you were married for at least 10 years and you are currently unmarried.
My wife wants to draw benifits from me not her ex spouse, can she do that.
Yes, she can do that right now
She can draw off your benefits
Do you know why she would be told that she has to wait 10 from our married date to recieve benifits off of my SS
The 10 year rule is only for ex spouses.
Perhaps someone was confused...and thought she wanted benefits off her ex.
But if you are currently married to someone you can draw benefits provided you have been married for 9 months
OK, that might be possible, I will go back to the SS people with her, I hope you are rifght...I recieve 2050.00 a month, what would she get from my benifits a month...Thanks
She'd get $1,025
OK I think this concludes our business, Thanks you have been a great help.Richard
