It seems to be in your case. Do you plan on coming off the SS you are collecting?

I am not privy to your divorce/separation agreement. Did you not negotiate a step-down SS imputing income to your ex? This would relate to (d) in your points above and is, indeed, entirely enforceable. Of course your agreement has to be written up the correct way. This is a mistake that many people make. Depending upon your situation (age, length of employment, length of marriage, etc) this might be an area to examine.

Does your agreement specifically indicate that retirement is a material change of circumstances (some people amazingly have in their agreements that it is NOT a material change of circumstances - I suspect that might be in the case of very wealthy individuals)?

Do not misconstrue "indefinite" with "quantum" as some people end up receiving $1.00/year indefinitely once they are deemed to be self-sufficient. The onus is on you to have in place a well-thought-out agreement which contemplates your plans for retirement.

I figure my ex owes me a minimum of 400k so no I do not believe SS will be ended anytime soon. He will either have to cough up the money or pay me indefinitely even if that means sharing his CPP with me.

What you believe he owes you and what is reality are two different things.....you just answered the question, SS is so good that you are not willing to cut the cord.

Well, arabian's version of reality is the one that's been supported by judge after judge, as her ex keeps getting smacked down in court for his attempts to get out of paying her SS. This suggests that he really did rip her off for a big chunk of the family business and karma is doing what karma does ...
