Divorce and Social Security

Brief

Divorce and Social Security

As the divorce rate rises, inequities associated with Social Securitys divorced-spouse benefit provision will become more common, yet few reform proposals have addressed this important issue. These inequities stem from granting benefits to divorced spouses without regard to their needs or contributions.
