Ex- Wife causing current wife's benefits to be withheld

What is the name of your state? New York
can my deceased husbands ex-wife obtain a QDRO thru the courts for pension benefits after he has passed? The divorce judgement requires she obtain a QDRO in order to receive pension benefits when he begins to. There is no stipulation for any benefits in death. Is there a time limit for obtaining a QDRO. It is my understanding it should be submitted to the courts asap after divorce, and that this right is lost now that he has died. Please advise.
