Ask a Social Security Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
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?
When you go to draw your social security benefit, you can draw a benefit off your own record OR a benefit off your current spouse. Once you remarry, you cannot draw off your former spouse, unless they pass away and your marriage to your current spouse began at age 60 or older.
Your benefit will be equal to the benefit that yields you the largest payment.
To find out what your benefit is vs what your spousal benefit is, you can call 1-800-772-1213 or visit your local office.
Each person only gets one benefit.

No, the spouse that you would have to use would be your current spouse. You cannot use your ex spouse if you remarried, unless your ex spouse has passed and you married your current spouse after you turned 60

So, in summary to answer your question -- you will use your current spouse for benefits. Typically you cannot use your ex spouse benefits once you remarry.
