How are ex-spouse benefits determined?

Published: January 10, 2024

Hi there,

Ex-spouse benefits are based on your ex’s primary insurance amount (PIA), the amount they would receive at their full retirement age (FRA).

You may contact the SSA to find out what your ex’s PIA is by providing the information needed to verify your marriage to, and divorce from, the individual.

For personalized assistance and/or support determining the optimal filing strategy for you, schedule a call with an RSSA here.

Take care,
