Unfortunately no. For you to have gotten a part of his retirement at this time, an order would have needed to have been set out in your original divorce decree.

If an order was set out, then it would have specifically ordered a percentage of the policy to have been paid to you at his retirement. If this was so, and you are not being paid, you would need to petition the court so that they could have the retirement paid to you. This is only if this was ordered in the original divorce decree.
