Sorry, YGTBFJ,

You really are screwed (as am I, welcome to the club.) "Rule of 65" means "indefinite" SS. Hope she dies early. It can be renegotiated when there is a "material change of circumstance" which you can define in your separation agreement.

The kicker is that the less she worked, the lower her salary, the more you pay.

In some cases you can negotiate a fixed payment. In other cases, it may be a percentage of whatever you earned in the previous year.

However, don't offer, make her at least ask.

So the discussion on weather or not it's compensatory is just theoretical? No points for it just being 1 over 65?

It is better for you if the justification SS is needs based rather than compensatory. That way if your EX wins the lottery or marries a millionaire you may have the SS decreased or stopped at some time in the future.

"Indefinite" actually means "until modified" so it's important to build reasons to review.
