Divorced Spouse Benefits

Divorced Spouse SSD Benefits

Receive the Benefits You Deserve with Our Reno Social Security Disability Attorney

Social security disability benefits are an important part of being financially secure for many retired and disabled individuals. When married couples divorce, a spouse may continue to receive vital benefits on their former spouse's social security record if certain conditions are met.

There are many stipulations that dictate whether you are eligible to receive benefits from your former spouse, and a Reno social security disability representative is in the best position to offer knowledgeable, experience-based guidance. At Disability Action Advocates, we can help you navigate these particular claims.

Call our offices at (888) 401-3920 today to get more than 20 years of experience on your side. Our professionals are ready to hear from you.

Meeting the Requirements

Benefits cannot be received from a former spouse unless you are personally qualified to receive benefits from the Social Security Administration. In the event that you re-marry, benefits generally cannot be paid on a former spouse's account unless the marriage ends.

Some of the core parameters necessary to qualify for divorced spouse benefits include:

  • You have been married to your former spouse for a minimum of 10 years
  • You are at least 62 years of age
  • You are currently unmarried and not entitled to a higher benefit yourself
