Social Security benefits
I'll make this quick:
Mother in law had her current husband of 39 years pass away from Covid.
Mother in law now wants to go after ex-husbands SS benefit, since they had been married for 16 years.Everything I find is the fact that she remarried excludes her from this.

Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

I think that is legal. She’s entitled.

She either has her own earned benefit or her current recently deceased husbands benefit, whichever is higher.

First husband makes no difference now.

If she’s over 60, benefits continue. If you get, survivor benefits go away.

Wrong. If your MIL is 62 or older and single, she can collect off of the highest benefit provided she was married to each husband longer than 10 years. If both her former and recent husbands are deceased she will receive 100 % of what they would have received instead of 50%.

The Social Security Administration will determine whether she will receive a higher benefit from husband #1, husband #2, or from her own social security.

Only if she remarries before the age of 60 and if her new spouse is still alive. Doesn't apply if she remarries after the age of 60 or her most recent marriage has ended in divorce or death which applies to OP.

Cutting and pasting OP's post really is pointless.

Straight from the SSA website.

"If you remarry before you turn 60 and that marriage ends, you may become entitled or re-entitled to benefits on your prior deceased spouse’s earnings record."

Pretty sure she can go after 1st husband. I have a situation where my mom is comfortable with a pension and SS benefits from her deceased husband and some snake 20 years younger (broke) trying to marry her. luckily she said no, she won't risk it but my F/A said you can now remarry and still collect ex husband SS, they changed that law BUT I never told my mother that

This is correct. However, if she is married to the second husband more than 10 years, and then he dies also, she will be able to get the higher of the two husbands. For now, since she is remarried, she will only receive her own.

Be careful and make sure. Some of these things have caveots, etc. I really think that she can only collect on husband #1 if husband #2 also dies. Just be careful. I am not totally sure.

She's not "going after" any husband. His earnings history can sometimes become a basis of a spousal or other benefit to her, but it doesn't affect the husband in any way, even if he's still alive and/or divorced. He will still have the same options as always regarding his earnings history, or hers.

There's no penalty to anyone involved. The rules are complicated and have changed a lot. I'm not up to date on the current rules.
