My husband and I have been separated 10 years, never

Customer Question

My husband and I have been separated for almost 10 years, never divorced. We were married for 21 years when we separated. I still live in our townhouse with our 27 year old daughter and I receive half of the retirement pay as agreed in the separation agreement. I found out through our kids that he is not doing so good healthwise. My question is will I receive any benefits should my (ex)husband pass? Will I still get part of the retirement $ ? I don't have a military ID card anymore. I do want to mention that the separation was not mutual. I wanted to seek counseling but he declined. Thank you.
