Pension issues
      #774498 - 01/16/12 09:20 AM

Going through a divorce. I have 2 kids. My husband is a firefighter and has been on a pension for 10 years. Does anybody know the laws of the pension or how to caculate what it is worth as I am trying to figure out if it will wash the equity out in the house

The kids have nothing to do with a pension.

You get 1/2 the current value, but only that which accrued while married.

I live in CT. I got a divorce in 1982 after 18 years of marriage. I was much younger and dumber then as I turned down getting any of my ex's pension that I would have been entitled to. Now at age 57 I am kicking myself big time. I want to know if there is anyway to revisit that?

No, can't revisit that part of the agreement. Your ex can always agree to give you half or some of it, but it's unlikely.

Yes, highly unlikely. Thanks Renny.

My mom was married to my Dad for 23 years. She get's 1/2 of his military retirement until he passes away.
