No, no, no... I am not worried about going to prison but I am sure this topic will be noticed by everyone.

Let's look at Ruth Madoff the wife of Bernie Madoff who is doing 100 years.

I believe Bernie forfeits his social security but what about his wife Ruth? She would get hers if she has it but what about spousal? Could she get Bernies?

And here you thought you'd see something really juicy!

It is all here ...

“If you receive Social Security, your benefits will be suspended if you’re convicted of a criminal offense and sent to jail or prison for more than 30 continuous days. Your benefits can be reinstated starting with the month following the month of your release.
Although you can’t receive monthly Social Security benefits while you’re incarcerated, benefits to your spouse or children will continue as long as they remain eligible.”
