We were married for 15 years. I have not remarried neither has he. He is going to be in prison for the rest of his life. He has paid into the system long enough to draw from it if he was free. Will I be able to draw from his account even though he is in prison?
I have changed the practice area to Social Security to allow the appropriate attorneys to respond.
