    Social Security Spousal Benefit

      On 4/16/2012 an excellent Bankrate.com article was posted to the MSN Money website on claiming a SocSec spousal benefit when divorced. There were several critical points made that should be considered before making a claim, such as the difference it makes if your ex-spouse is deceased or living, for example.
       
      A link to the article is below:
       

      Social Security on ex's record?

      If you are divorced, you may be eligible for benefits based on the earnings of a former spouse. It will depend on the length of your marriage, among other things.
