Going through a divorce can be traumatic and confusing; if you also receive a monthly Social Security disability payment, it makes it all the more complicated. You may be wondering about a whole range of topics—from how your monthly payment could change to whether disability settlements are taken into account when determining joint assets.
The effect of your divorce on your disability payments will depend on many factors, including what state you lived in at the time of divorce, what kind of disability payment you are receiving, and how your divorce affects your overall income. And while each individual divorce settlement is different, the following can help answer some of your basic questions.
