Divorced Spouse Benefits

Receiving Divorced Spouse Benefits

Meeting Certain Qualifications

If your Social Security Disability benefits depended on your former spouse, you may need to apply for divorced spouse benefits. It is difficult enough to cope with the end of your marriage without adding the stress of filing for benefits all over again. If you need to apply for divorced spouse benefits, contact a qualified representative today.

You may qualify for benefits on your former spouse's Social Security if you:

  • Were married to your ex-spouse for at least 10 years
  • Are at least 62 years of age
  • Are not married
  • Do not qualify for a higher benefit on your own record

Filing for divorced spouse benefits can be confusing. Disability Action Advocates will do all your paperwork for you, including help with the initial filing. Our Las Vegas Social Security Disability advocates do not take any payment from you until your case is won. Thousands of Social Security Disability benefits cases have been won with our expertise and determination to fight for your rights.

Advantages to Hiring an Experienced Lawyer

It is important to remember that your former spouse must also be eligible to receive their own disability or retirement benefits. If they are eligible but haven't yet applied, you can still get your benefits if you meet the requirements, and have been divorced for at least two years. Likely, you will not qualify for divorced spouse benefits if you have remarried anyone besides your former spouse, unless that marriage ends by death, divorce or annulment. But you may still qualify if your new spouse is entitled to specific types of Social Security auxiliary or survivor's benefits.

These are just some of the rules surrounding these types of cases, and winning your benefits is too important to be ruined by a little mistake in paperwork. As you can see, the rules and regulations can easily become overwhelming without the right help. You are our priority, and our Las Vegas Social Security Disability advocates will fight for the benefits you deserve.
