If your ex has, while married with you, set status quo with expensive monthly trips to the hairdresser or her therapist then you should see this on her budget.

Did the two of you fill out budgets and exchange?

It is not uncommon for people who have expensive medicines to try to get more SS. It is also not uncommon for a SS award to include cost of payee's new medical insurance provider premiums.

Understood - while we were together - she never went to counseling. Never felt the need or requirement despite the issues between us and her own self diagnosed suffering of depression.
The moment we split - twice a month.
Yes we filled out budgets and exchanged and all was put forth at Arbitration.
The Arbitrator indicated that she would not address the benefits matter because at that time - we were not divorced. Her indication was that if and when we divorce, my ex could make application.
Which I fully expect.

so you bring up the matter of full time employment usually comes with employee benefits.

When I divorced (married 30 years) the SS award considered the budgets. SS awards also consider age of two parties, health etc. and ability of recipient to become self-sufficient. It seems to me that your ex has achieved self-sufficiency. You were only married 10 years (correct?) and have paid SS for 5 years.

in 2011 this was your post:

I am able to retire in about 5-7 yrs. Currently avg 94K base...107K with OT. Paying SS and CS w ex making about 35K. She will be getting a portion of my pension. Her 5yr plan (from today) is to be fulltime by then making 75-85K - benefits - pension etc. Is it possible that if I retire and she is making that kind of money that she would in fact pay me SS?

Do you have her "5yr plan" in writing?
