32% FERS awarded to ex spouse (ink not dry on divorce papers) in divorce settlement, once the ex spouse is deceased do I start receiving my full pension?

Private answer

Charlie, I would like to refer you to the Attorney Handbook on Court Ordered Benefits which can be found at the following link: Specifically go to page 77 and it will tell you what can be done. However, your court order acceptable for processing will stipulate what happens in your particular situation. If your court order is silent on this, then 5 CFR 838.237 will apply which means the former spouse's portion reverts back to you.
