    Are you talking about the pension continuying if you die? Generally, speaking you take a reduced pension in order for your spouse to receive continued benefits. How much of a reduction you take depends on what percentage of your pension you want your spouse to receive, combined with your and your spouse's ages (projected longevity factors).
    Going too far is half the pleasure of not getting anywhere

      L-1...I think he's talking about the "D" word.
      This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.

            If it wasn't for physics and law enforcement, I'd be unstoppable!

            Your life is NOT my fault.

            What part of NO did you not understand?

              I also can't speak for California but here she would be eligible for half.
              Assuming they were married for more than just a couple of years.

                  9114life...
                  All depends on the settlement. When I got the "shaft", the ex got the house, and I got to keep my retirement as part of the deal. I guess it all depends on how amicable the settlement is, or if the ex wants to take you for all she can. It also depends on if your spouse is working or not...it all figures into the final equation. I guess I was just lucky that all I lost was the house and some BS property. Have you tried to use an arbitrator...or is it too late for that? Good luck, but as Iowa said, a pension is "community" property.
