Best Answer
Pension BenefitsThe spouse is entitled to 1/2 the pension up until the time of the divorce. After that it's up to the judge.

More Information: Social Security Benefits

A couple must be married for at least 10 years before a spouse is eligible to receive any portion of the other spouse's Social Security benefits. What percentage, if any, of private pension benefits an ex-spouse might be entitled to would depend upon the laws of the state in which the couple live.
