Is your ex spouse receiving benefits?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
not yet she will be recieving benefits in december
Expert:  Phillips Esq. replied 4 months ago.

Thank you for the information.

You cannot apply for benefits until she starts receiving her own benefits.

Your domestic partnership without legally being married will not impact your eligibility for divorced spouse's benefits.

Kindly give a positive rating to my response so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for doing this.

Thank you for your cooperation.
