Your benefit as a divorced spouse is equal to one-half of your ex-spouse's full retirement amount (or disability benefit) if you start receiving benefits at your full retirement age.
Expert:  lev-tax replied 6 months ago.
If you start benefits NOW - before your full retirement age - they will be permanently reduced.If you remarry, you cannot receive benefits on your former spouse's record unless the new marriage ends (by death, divorce, or annulment)..I appreciate if you take a moment to rate the answer.Experts are ONLY credited when answers are rated positively.If you still have any doubts, need clarification - please be sure to ask.I am here to help you will all tax related issues.
