How much Social Security does an ex spouse get?

The most you can collect in divorced-spouse benefits is 50 percent of your former mate's primary insurance amount — the monthly payment he or she is entitled to at full retirement age (currently 66 but gradually rising to 67 over the next several years).

Can I collect half of my ex husband’s Social Security at 62?

You can collect a spousal benefit as long as you are 62, and as long as your spouse is 62 – even if your ex has not filed for their own benefits yet. (They must be at least age 62, the earliest age you become eligible for your social security retirement benefits.)”

Can my ex spouse reduce my Social Security benefits?

The SSA provides an essential protection for ex-spouses when it comes to the family maximum. Sometimes, the family maximum leads to reduced benefits for family members. However, the SSA specifically states that benefits for divorced spouses, whether they're spousal or survivor benefits, are never reduced.
