Am I entitled to my ex-husband’s retirement or is his only living brother, since he took care of him his last years of his life? 4 Answers as of April 14, 2014

I was married for five years and have been divorced for over 20 years. I had no contact with my ex-husband. I have remarried since then. My ex-husband has passed away and never took me off as beneficiary on his retirement pension from work.

If you are the beneficiary, you are lucky; it has nothing to do with inheritance rights.

It depends upon what the divorce decree said regarding the retirement plan. Be careful not to take the money until you have this cleared up or it could result in some issues. Show the divorce decree to an attorney to determine your rights.
