I am planning to file for a divorce in California and I wanted to know if my husband is entitled to my retirement benefits if I don't have 5 years vested yet for my retirement once the divorce is final.

Dear DL9,

Actually, even if your retirement is not yet vested, it is still community propery. Research the case of Brown in Cali for more info.

I've been divorced since 1999, my question is there a time limit for eligability in collecting on my husbands retirement? I've never received and spousal support what so ever...I just wanted out and to get away.
Marriage is like a hot bath.....once you get used to it it's not so hot !!

benefits as part of your settlement? If not, then I'm not certain that you are entitled to anything at this point.

What does your marital settlement say? In my case my ex will receive a portion of my retirement upon my death because it is written in our settlement that I must elect to provide a survivor benefit when I retire. Normally that reduces the amount of retirement, however, it is also stated in out settelment that he is responsible to cover that reduction.
