Hi, and Welcome to JustAnswer, My name isXXXXX am a licensed, practicing Attorney, I have 25 years experience and would be glad to help
The attorneys on JustAnswer are glad to answer questions and give information, but JustAnswer is not a law firm, so we cannot take on client representation and no attorney-client relationship is formed.
Please keep in mind that the law does not always support our position and although I may not agree with the law, I do not write the law and, therefore, cannot control the outcome, So, please remember that does lessen the time and effort I devoted to researching your question and providing you with an Answer,
The Answer I am providing is information only and does not constitute the practice of law in jurisdictions where I am not licensed to practice. This is a public forum on the internet, so I caution you not to include any personal identifying information
If your mother was married to your farher for 10 years or more, your mother is eligible to receive Social Security benefits based on your father's Social Security. As for yoiur father's pension, that was, or should have been delat with during the divorce proceedings, therefore, there is no claim to be made on that,
Please be kind enough to press "ACCEPT", otherwise I do not get paid anything at all
BONUS and POSITIVE FEEDBACK are appreciated
