Wife wants a divorce my income from ssdi is three times the amount of hers. Will her benefits go up if we divorce or stay the same. We are on or own work record. She could never survive on the income she gets from ssdi.

Hi there,
Your wife would need to be over 62 or caring for a child under 16 to receive disability benefits from your work record if you divorce.

Hi Claire,
You may be able to collect benefits based off of his work record only if it would be more than what you would receive on your own work record.
