Planning for your future without your spouse’s income can be a daunting task. At Torriente Marum, we encourage our clients to think through different “what-if” scenarios prior to mediations and settlement conferences. Social Security payments on a former spouse’s account should be considered when thinking through your finances. Our clients often have questions like the ones posed here in this Question and Answer session from Fox Business with Dorothy Clark, a forty year veteran of the Social Security Administration.
You can also find more information regarding Social Security payments regarding former spouses at the Social Security website.
