In a South Dakota divorce, am I entitled to my spouse's Social Security benefits?

In South Dakota, you may be entitled to up to one-half of your former spouse's Social Security benefits when you retire.  This rule applies when:

  • Your marriage lasted more than 10 years; and
  • You are at least 62 years old and have not yet remarried.
