  • Ex Spouses and Pension Benefits

    Dec 21, 2021, 4:10 PM By MOSERS
    If my ex spouse remarried before I receive benefits do they still get half? 

    Yes, pension benefit payments to your ex-spouse will commence when you begin receiving benefits from MOSERS in accordance with applicable statutes and the Division of Benefits Order(DBO) we have on file for you. Re-marriage of your ex-spouse does not affect their eligibility to receive their portion of your benefit. Upon either your death or the death of your ex-spouse, the DBO will automatically terminate.

    See the Divorce and Your Pension Benefit brochure for more information.
