How do I model SS ex-spousal benefits with future marriage after age 66?Submitted by cclardy55 on Sat, 05/28/2016 - 09:41
My domestic partner of 17 years and I both filed for divorced ex-spousal Social Security benefits this year. Hers is $1,113/month. Mine will be around $800/month. We are both 66 years old and plan to switch to our own 32% higher Social Security retirement benefits when each of us turns 70 in 2020. I am retired and receiving a small pension and doing Roth conversions, while she is still working full time and intends to work through at least 2017, possibly longer. I have another small pension that I have not signed up for yet that grows by 10%/year delayed retirement credits.
