Is there a limit to the amount of monthly benefits my family can get on my record?
There is a limit to the amount we can pay your family. The total depends on your benefit amount and the number of family members who also qualify on your record. The total varies, but generally, the total amount you and your family can get is about 150 to 180 percent of your full retirement benefit.
The benefit payments we make to a divorced spouse do not affect the benefits payable to you or any other family member.
