Can I get half of my husband’s Social Security if we divorce?
In Florida, disability benefits, including Social Security disability benefits, are not subject to equitable distribution in a divorce. This means that if your husband receives Social Security disability benefits, you would not be entitled to half of these benefits in a divorce. Disability benefits are seen as a substitute for future lost income rather than a marital asset, so they are not divided like other assets in a divorce.
