Almost certainly not, but check your state's laws. If you mixed up the money in the house and bank accounts, it is going to be tough. If you kept it separate, it should …be pretty clean. Again, this can vary state to state.
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 d…rawing 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.
You can not receive both even if your dead spouse could
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.
No. A widow or widower can only receive survivor benefits if the spouse was employed or self-employed, paid FICA taxes, and accumulated sufficient work credits.
My spouse has passed away. Can I receive her social security check?
It depends. Were you ordered to pay spousal support in the divorce decree, and for what length of time? If you were, then you pay. Otherwise, it is up to you. If you want to h…elp support your ex for whatever personal reasons, then do so. Otherwise it is not your obligation. Social Security is income, however, so the fact that you are not out "earning a living" anymore doesn't in and of itself, change the rules.
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.
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)
Alimony is usually paid to one or other of the divorced partners from a marriage. It is also usually set by the court as part of the divorce settlement. However if the divorce…e paying the alimony circumstances change then it would be reasonable to go back to the court and ask for the agreement to be suspended (or indeed indeed reversed if the other partner is now the better off .... a bit radical but perhaps worth a try). Obviously you can not pay what you no longer have. However, if the payments are for the support of children (not the old partner) then although you may not be able to pay as much as before you should still find some money out of your social security to support your kids untill they are 18.
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.
No. Your spouse can receive them and you can receive them, but you have no right to theirs.
ex-spouse that has a special needs child, are they able to receive benefits
can the spouse of a common law marriage receive the other spouse social security after death
Yes, a spouse would have to pay back Social Security benefitsreceived for a spouse who was incarcerated.
