Customer Question

I am 65 years old and have been divorced for 5 years.
i presently pay 50% of my income as alimony.
She took 1/2 of my profit sharing during the divorce.

If i retire at 66 will the alimony still apply?
Is my social security all mine?

Unless there's a time limit on the length of time you pay alimony, you'll have to continue paying. Your SS benefits would yours unless the court awarded her any interest in this money.


It's more likely that instead of parcing out or dividing your SS, the court just set an alimony payment.
