Ask Larry about Social Security:
Can My Ex File Based On My Record?
Hi Larry, I am currently 63 years of age and recently divorced after a 20 year marriage. My ex-wife is currently 60 years of age and is unemployed. Can she collect her spousal benefit based on my account, since I am the higher wage earner? If yes, does this reduce my retirement benefit amount when I file for it? Thanks, Dennis
