I am about to start receiving my Pension...but I was told that my ex-wife from more than 8 years ago, [the same woman that took everything I had], was my appointed beneficiary on the pension plan!
When I inquired how I can change that....I was told that because she was listed as my beneficiary when the Court signed the Divorce Decree...It must stay the way it is, with all my benefits going to her if I should die!
Does anyone out there know if this is true? And if I truly can not change this, what would happen if she were to die first? Who would be my beneficiary then???? I have two daughters by an earlier marriage and I would like to see that they receive any benefits!
I can not afford a lawyer right now so any opinion or advice would be greatly appreciated.What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
