I have been divorced years but never received any part

Customer Question

I have been divorced for 20 years but never received any part of my exhusbands retirement pension - we were married 25 years - he was a successful stock broker.
When we separated I did not received any communal money as he had sold our marital home and either liquidated or hid our stock portfolio.
I raised our five children ( minimal child support was paid) and they are now grown and doing very well!
I went back to teaching after the divorce and retired six years ago. He retired five years ago.
I find myself in a stressful financial situation ( total monthly income is $2100 before taxes).
Recently I was told that I should have received a portion of my ex- husbands retirement pension.
Is this true? Is it to late to apply?
I am 65 and work at two part time jobs to make ends meet.

What province do you live in?Are you saying there was no division of assets at all?What does the agreement or divorce judgment say about support? Is this about CPP or a private pension?
