Social Security Divorced Spouse Benefits and Survivor Benefits

June 23, 2018

How does applying for Medicare work for a divorced spouse who does not have a Social Security record of her own and when can the divorced spouse collect her spousal benefit? Jim and Chris answer these and other email questions from listeners including: Are there good financial planning software tools for do-it-yourselfers? And, how is a survivor’s benefit calculated if the deceased spouse died after their full retirement age but prior to filing for their Social Security benefit? Jim and Chris also discuss the 2018 Social Security Trustees report.
