Two Marriages. Two Divorces. What about Social Security Now?

Spousal benefits are a complex set of intricate rules that often require doing some extensive math computations to decipher Social Security benefits. John Manganaro dives into examples in this piece, but the general principle is this: “An ex-spouse who wants to claim spousal benefits must have been married at least 10 years. The couple must have been divorced two years, or the ex-spouse must already be claiming Social Security. Also, the ex-spouse must not have remarried, but if their “new” spouse and the ex-spouse are both dead, a person can claim the highest benefits of either.” Full article here.
