Customer Question

When does a 69 year old divorced and not remarried man become eligible to draw spousal support from his 62 year old wife? The marriage was 10 plus years.

As long as you have been divorced for at least two years you should be able to apply for benefits based upon her earnings record now that she has turned 62.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Will the draw be reduced based on her age or will the draw be based on the 50% of her eligible monthly benefit?
Expert:  Jonathan Tierney replied 1 year ago.

Your benefit would be based upon 50% of her benefit when she reaches her full retirement benefit. Since you have reached your full retirement age, their is no reduction in benefits for claiming them early.
