Can I get half of my husband’s Social Security if we divorce?

December 22, 2023 in Divorce, Property and Asset Distribution

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.
