What happens to Social Security benefits during a divorce?

If you’ve been married for a period of at least ten years, you will likely be entitled to a 100% of your own Social Security benefits or 50% of the value of your spouse’s Social Security benefits. But the good news is, that 50% of your spouse’s Social Security benefits will not actually impact the benefit that your spouse will get from his or her own Social Security benefits. So they’ll still get a 100% of their own record.
