I'm in the process of divorcing my husband/wife. I haven't been able to find a job, and we relied on his/her Social Security Disability payments when we were together. Can I claim any benefits even if we're not together anymore?

The Administration has set up rules regarding who can claim benefits. Generally, if a person gets married, their benefits may stop. If their marriage ends, they might start receiving benefits again. According to their website , if you get divorced from someone claiming Social Security Disability benefits, you must be 62 years of age or older and married for at least 10 years to claim their benefits. contact our Social Security disability law firm to find out more.
