Can a divorced spouse receive railroad retirement and social security?
Hi I am 55 years of age. My ex husband is 61. We were married for 22 years while he worked for the railroad. He just recently retired from the railroad after 40 years and is drawing his retirement. I am asking can I draw my portion of his railroad retirement and my own social security that I have paid into working through my own jobs through the years past. I am living with relatives at this time because I do not have a job, no health insurance and no way to support myself.

Answer No, Social Security benefits regardless of the type are subject to garnishment for child support. Whenever there is a court order of any… sort in force the involved party must comply with the order until it is rescinded by the court.
Yes, if the couple was married at least ten years and the surviving spouse is at least 60 years of age (survivors' retirement benefits) or 50, if disabled -- provided the surv…iving ex-spouse hasn't remarried and remained married. He or she must be single when the former husband or wife dies to qualify for compensation. A surviving ex-spouse may receive survivors' benefits at any age if caring for the decedent's natural or legally adopted minor children under age 16. The survivor may remarry after age 60 (or 50, if disabled) without jeopardizing his or her Social Security survivors' benefits.
Yes: If the ex-husband is currently collecting and they have been married for at least 10 years prior to the divorce. Also, if the husband has not yet filed a claim, the ex-wi…fe may collect if they were married for at least 10 years prior to the divorce and has been finally divorced for 2 years.
Can you receive Social Security benefits when you retire if you already receive veteran disability benefits?
Yes, if you have the right number of quarters in and are at least 65 or blind or disables.
An otherwise eligible convicted felon may receive Social Security disability or retirement benefits when he or she is not incarcerated for more than 30 days and has no outstan…ding warrants. Social Security will not pay cash benefits to anyone living in a prison, jail, nursing home or other tax-supported facility; however, if the person is eligible for retirement benefits under SSA guidelines, he or she may receive them after release. Payees are not entitled to back benefits for the time spent incarcerated. Yes, yes they can.
You can if you were married for at least 10 years, but not until you reach the age of eligibility to receive Social Security benefits. If you have been married more than once,… and if you were married to each husband at least 10 years, I believe you can actually file on the one which would pay the most. But you can file for social security benefits on only one person, whether it's yourself, or one of your ex or deceased spouses.
Yes you can choose to receive your monthly social security check in the mail if that is really what you want to do.
You can not receive both even if your dead spouse could
Your spouse's income is not a factor.
You can receive social security benfits at the age of 65 or if you were born after 1959, 67. This is said to possibly increase with the increasing number of older individuals …in our country and the dwindling number of younger individuals putting money into social security.
No. Because it is the persons case based on their work history
No. Your spouse can receive them and you can receive them, but you have no right to theirs.
If you were married at least 10 years and the spouse has not remarried, then he/she would receive the standard 50% share from your social security pension. It does not lower y…our payments however. Parenthetically, you can remarry and get divorced numerous times, and the spouse will each get 50% share (assuming that they were each married for minimum 10 years)
The Annual Earnings Test for 2011 hasn't been released yet, but budget projections indicate there may be no change from 2010. For the 2010 tax year, the answer depends on your… age. If you've reached full retirement age (65 for people born prior to 1943; 66 for people born between 1943 and 1954, gradually increasing to age 67 for people born after 1954), there is no limit to how much you can earn. In the year you reach full retirement age, you can earn $37,680 annually, but for every $3.00 over the limit, $1.00 is withheld from your benefits until the month your reach full retirement age. If you don't reach full retirement age in 2010, you can earn $14,160 per year without incurring a penalty. For every $2.00 over the limit, $1.00 is withheld from benefits.
Answer Absolutely! Congratulations, you old double dipper.
Generally yes, assuming you were legally married and didn't do them in. The surviving spouse can collect when they reach 62. If a surviving spouse is caring for a child who is… receiving survivor benefits the spouse can also collect a benefit while the child is receiving benefits, and then it stops until the spouse is eligible for the retirement benefit.
I am retired military 50 my wife 46 is going to retire from the Railroad in 2019 how is our social security impacted Can she receive RR retirement while I receive military retirement?
social security is not impacted by other retirements. they are separate. Your military retirement will not affect or change your wife's retirement from the railroad. you will …each have your own retirement and at age 62 or older you each will also have your own social security. however, your wife many not have any input to social security benefits if she has not paid into social security during her work span. best to check with social security to see where she stands with social security
