  • I am now divorced. I am 56 and my ex husband is 65. I was a stay home mom most of our marriage. Do I get social security off him

    I am new divorced. I am his 3rd wife. I was married to him the longest. He is currently married again. I am 56 and he is 65. Am I entitled to his social security. I did not work much so I won't be getting good much

    Paula’s Answer

    If your ex-husband is entitled to Social Security, and if you were married at least 10 years, and if you are at least 62 years of age (60 if disabled) and if the Social Security benefit available on your own account is not greater, you can receive benefits on his record. Read more about this entitlement here: https://www.ssa.gov/planners/retire/divspouse.html.

    Property division re-dos in divorce are very limited under Idaho law, especially after so much time has passed. Consult with local experienced family for the detailed review of your evidence needed to determinie if any re-opening is even possible.

    Let me see if I understand: you are suffering "undue hardship" and need to "save your entire life" so you want the volunteer attorneys here to wave some magic wand over your concerns. Surely it has occurred to you that nothing good will happen until you consult with experienced business counsel, who can review the agreement you signed and the one you did not.
