What is needed to divide retirement accounts in a divorce?

As with most property in an Arizona divorce, pensions and retirement accounts are often considered part of the marital estate and are divided according to Arizona's community property rules. This often means that part of one spouse's pension or retirement account needs to be distributed to the other spouse.

When can you claim Social Security under your ex spouse's name?

If you divorced after marriage that was 10 years long or longer, you may be entitled to Social Security retirement benefits under your ex-spouse's record. This could occur if you are at least 62 and receiving benefits under your ex-spouse's record would be an advantage over using your own record. You get the larger benefit between the two records, not benefits from both accounts.

Considering a divorce after 50? You're not alone

In fact, whereas the overall rate of divorce is declining in the United States, the divorce rate for people 50 and over has been rising.
