Anyone know if the EX wife story is true??

I have "been told" if you have any or multiple EX wifes, EVEN if you are married when you die, the first one that calls in gets your SS????

Seemed as if when I signed up for my SS ( you do it 3 months before the age you want to draw it) they asked more questions about my EX than me..

I know that if you are married and both of you draw SS then when one dies the larger amount is the one you end up with. My MIL who is 90 has been collecting her husbands SS for decades and he died in a car accident in 1963! shock

I'd love to know if this is true too. I have an ex that I'd prefer not get a cent since I've been paying her fat useless azz alimony for years. Would MUCH prefer my current wife get the $$$. She's gonna need it far worse than the spoiled rich be-yatch I married the first time...

Retirement age depends on birth year.

Benefit earned is calculated with algorithms.
Basically it takes all years you payed in, adjust to todays current value, takes top 35 years total, averages that, the benefit is based on that amount.

Thanks for the explanation! up I finally got signed in and looked at my career earnings and benefits, etc. It told me my retirement date of 66-1/2 not 67-1/2. Not a big difference, but as tired as I am of working where I am, every little bit is going to help. I'm now officially counting the years until I turn 66-1/2. It'll be here way sooner than I'd like to admit. But longer than I'd like to be at the place I'm at...

Sample quote

As a result of changes to Social Security enacted in 1983, benefits are now expected to be payable in full on a timely basis until 2037, when the trust fund reserves are projected to become exhausted.1

At the point where the reserves are used up, continuing taxes are expected to be enough to pay 76 percent of scheduled benefits. Thus, the Congress will need to make changes to the scheduled benefits and revenue sources for the program in the future.

The Social Security Board of Trustees project that changes equivalent to an immediate reduction in benefits of about 13 percent, or an immediate increase in the combined payroll tax rate from 12.4 percent to 14.4 percent, or some combination of these changes, would be sufficient to allow full payment of the scheduled benefits for the next 75 years.

The program now provides benefits to over 50 million people and is financed with the payroll taxes from over 150 million workers and their employers. Further modifications of the program are a certainty as the Congress continues to evolve and shape this program, reflecting the desires of each new generation.

End quote

Notice that 150 million
are "pay as you go" supporting
50 million.

With the "Baby Boomers" retiring in a bulge now,
and the USA under age 65 "worker participation rate" percentage dropping,
soon 160 million will be supporting 80 million.

The 80 million retired could grow to some unknown larger number if a medical breakthrough drug like the potential one described below is found to work.

LOL, I wasn't much help.. When they asked me her name I said "not sure, she is remarried"
Where does she live " don't know, don't care.
What is her phone #... " don't wanna know and don't want to be accused of "stalking"....

God I miss her..... LOL

LOL! Not quite the same situation in my case... let's just say divorce law in NC isn't kind to men... I've had to pay her too much for WAY too long! Fact is, she's a millionaire's kid and she is now sole heir to his fortune. She doesn't NEED my Social Security $$$, but I would bet because she's greedy that she'll tap it anyway. Maybe just out of spite.

Not much you can do about the laws... Yeah, they are messed up basically "protecting" the "weaker" sex.... now that's a LOL..

Best fix is to NEVER marry... BAD BAD way to mess up your life..

I’ve got one of those “out there somewhere” too.

Married to her from 1978 to 1983.

Married to current wife since 1985! WINNER! boogie

My ex? Dunno . Last I heard she ways on her fourth marriage, and lost custody of at least one kid. And THAT was over 20 plus years ago.

Had a full police background check done in 2002, and even they couldn’t find her.

I thank God daily that I never fathered anything with that dingbat! bow

My ex already got half of my house, half of my 401K, and luckily I bought MY pension out. That saint deserves my Social Security too. I'd rather see her get it than some low life system worker that NEVER worked a day in his or her life. The abuse that is going on there is killing Social Security.

I have 4 ex's. I only know where the last one is and she is OK by me. However, I should be married again soon so I don't think I need to worry about that.

He obviously bumped his head... biggrin

As for the original topic I guess in 15-18 years I'll have to worry about it...That damn death clock said I'd make it to 96...I listed myself as optimistic but after seeing that I'm leaning more towards skeptical...
