Hi, thank you for your answer. Some one from PERS ( Oregon public Employment Retirement System) told me, that in the pre-Retirement the spouse is the primary beneficiary, and you need spousal consent to designate any other beneficiary, but for the actual retirement, you can designate any one , without the spousal consent, is that true? I live in Oregon, is there any thing different than any other state? Thank you
Do I have to be divorced before his actual retirement to be entitled to approximately half, or I have the same right even if I filled for divorce after he already retired.
I know I am asking too many questions, but I am In not very good situation now.
If I filed for divorce and he refuse to sign it, what I can do? And how log take to finalize the divorce? I am American citizen, I got married in Iraq 26 years ago, I am scared to file for divorce, I know he will fight it as much as he can.
