Not necessarily. Can you give me a little more information on the situation and I can give you a more exact answer? Are your divorced --if so, when did it happen? How many years married? What does the divorce decree state regarding insurance and pension benefits (if anything?)
Hello. In PA, the benefits are void in the event of a divorce UNLESS the divorce decree says something different (such as the insurance is to continue to name the ex wife as beneficiary or the ex wife is to receive a portion of the pension benefits). Usually in long term marriages, the ex wife will receive a portion of insurance and pension benefits, so I would find it unusual of the decree does not address these issues. If there is nothing in the decree, then the husband's other heirs can challenge that the ex's name is XXXXX XXXXX the insurance and pension -- and the best argument here is that he did not have enough time to change things over because his final illness and death happened before he had the chance to do so.

Hello. It sounds to me like he did not change over the work items because he wanted to continue to hack in and mess with the direct deposit items and anything else he could get into -- and if that is the types of behavior that demonstrate to me that this was not the friendliest of break ups. I believe that a successful court action could be pursued here considering the amount of time that had lapsed between the divorce and his death.
