Am I eligible for portion of pension monies?

Posted in Divorce, Location, London, Ontario by Questions on June 8, 2014

Divorce granted in 1987 and I have the decree. (ex-spouse now deceased and had been remarried). Am I eligible for portion of pension monies? I don’t believe anything was ever signed giving up pension or anything else for that matter.

    A Family Lawyer said:

    The issue is survivor benefit entitlement under the pension plan. The best course of action would be to discuss the issue with a family law lawyer or a pension actuary who is in a position to review the terms of the pension plan and give an opinion as to whether the survivor benefit portion of the pension plan is in effect. You would need to provide that lawyer or actuary with details as to the pension member’s date of retirement and date of your separation from that pension member. In respect of the pension monies from Canada Pension Plan, you should contact Service Canada because there are many rules changes over the years. It is possible there would be some entitlements however that all depends on an interpretation and reading of the terms of the pension plan.
