What Are NYS Laws On Pension/retirement Benefits For Ex Spouse ?

  • By: David Bliven, Esq.
  • Published: October 28, 2020

Q: Married 21 years, divorced 1 and half years. Homemaker for entire marriage. Reread divorce stipulation agreement and there’s nothing about what, if any, benefits I may be entitled to on my X spouses retirement plan. The agreement doesn’t mention anything about it. I’m wondering if I could find out? If so how? Or if it’s not written in agreement does that mean that I don’t receive anything?

A: Generally if the agreement doesn’t address it, it’s considered waived. That said, to be sure you should bring the agreement into a divorce attorney for a thorough review. Thus, call a White Plains Divorce attorney to schedule a consult for a full assessment.
