AARP's Social Security Q&A Tool

I'm getting divorced. My husband wants the settlement agreement to say that I will never be able to get a divorced spousal benefit. Is that legal?

En español | No, your soon-to-be ex-spouse has no control over your future benefits. You can qualify for a divorced spouse's benefits if you were married at least 10 years, are now unmarried, are 62 or older, and if any benefit from your own work record would be less than a divorced spouse's benefit.
