l was married to my exhusband l will be appling for social security soon. will l be able to get some since we 're married for 33years?

Dimitry K., Esq. :

Thank you for your question.

Dimitry K., Esq. :

Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.

Dimitry K., Esq. :

Provided that you did not remarry, your right to seek benefits exists simply because you were married for over 10 years.

Dimitry K., Esq. :

That automatically grants you the right to seek the greater of either your own benefits, or 50% of the evaluation of what your ex is entitled to.

Dimitry K., Esq. :

That 50% is not removed from your ex, it is a separate benefit that is solely provided to you--your filing would not affect him or his benefits.

Dimitry K., Esq. :

Hope that helps.
