Divorced Fireman

Leslie from Arkansas

My father worked as a city fireman for 25+ years. He paid into a pension and did not pay into Social Security. My mother worked for 20+ years and did pay into Social Security. They were married for 20+ years and then divorced and both remarried. My mother is at retirement age but is not drawing off of what she put in, but she does draw off her present husband's account. My father is at retirement age. Is he entitled to draw off her account?

ANSWER: No, because he is married, but you gave it a nice try Leslie!
