My husband is retiree and receiving 100% disability
My husband is retiree and receiving 100% disability retirement. Now, this is combination of Army and Veterans pay. His ex-spouse after 19 years of being divorced has taken him to court and claims he chose disability so not to pay her the 1/2 of his retirement when in fact he was let go by military because of his disability about 5 years after their divorce. My question is, can she be awarded part of his disability retirement? My husband is going to be 75 and this is taking a toll on him mentally and physically. She requested a few things yesterday in court but one thing that we are considering is letting a lien be put on our home here in NJ....if we do so, does that lien transfer to anyone she deems fit for inheritance?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: NJJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: The individual that is representing him is a retired LT COL but, I do not know how come he hasn't been able to put the point across that my husband's pension is a disability pension and 100% tax free.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I guess that is it for the moment...there is so much going on

Now that I think about it, I have a second question. If I get a fatal disease (and is noted as such by my doctor) as a 69 year old, but I don't die until I'm in my 70th year, will the insurance company still have to pay on the policy since my policy would expire the day I turn 70 ?

My mother died in 2007. But for years she told me an my older sister she had been paying into some kind of account such as Gerber life for example. I never asked any questions because it wasn't a subject I wanted to talk about. Neither did my sister. She said it was only 6 dollars a month each so she paid it yearly. She even told me on the day before she passed which was sudden. She didn't even have a will. But my family members agreed to go by my stepfather will to make things simple and fast. I also have 3 half siblings. Which were appointed executors to get estate. I see my step father wrote me out of his will. But our attorney spoke with all my siblings an they agreed I should get as much as they did. My mom never told my half sibilings for watever reason. Bit afyer she passed i had yo bring it up. Afterall my mom paid into it for 47 yrs for me. I ceel i owe her that. But i cant vet anyone to tell me were to start or if the staute of limitations had run out. I would be forever grateful if you could help answer any of my questions. I feel it's the right thing to do. She was forever telling me about it so she really wanted us to have it. My real father was murdered wen I was just 10 years old. Maybe that was her reason for taking out these policies. My older sister will also vouch for me an what I'm saying. Please help me. I feel I have nobody else to turn to. Sincerely, ***** *****
