How Does Former Spouse Start Her Payments Awarded In Divorce?
(Posted October 1, 2012)
Question 910: I just found out my ex-husband retired from the railroad several months ago. What do I need to do to receive the share of his Tier 2 ordered in our divorce decree?
Answer: You need to contact the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) as soon as possible. Use their toll-free number: (877)772-5772.
Your divorce attorney should have sent the RRB a copy of the final divorce decree along with your contact information as soon as the decree was issued.
Answers are provided as general guidance on the subjects covered in the question and are not provided as legal advice
