Ex Wives Rights to deceased Veterans Disability Pension?

Ex Wives Rights to deceased Veterans Disability Pension?  I know a Ex-Wife of a deceased Veteran, who died recently from cancer due to expousure while he was in Vietnam.  They were married for a little over 39 years and had three children, but about one year before he was dianosed with the cancer, (2008) they divorced. He was granted 100% disability after the divorce, and died in about a month ago.  Since they were married for over 39 years and she was his only wife, is she entilted to 50% of his Disability Pension for the rest of her life? We are looking for any information that we can find on this subject, and can be reached at RonaldMartello@aol.com

Thank You Ronald Martello

The US Department of Veterans Affairs has a VERY complex -- and utterly fair -- formula for the determination of survivor benefits. Widows and orphans can expect rational treatment with the VA. The only time when that was NOT taken for granted was when Obama and his brigands shut down the Federal Government -- and that was only 12 days. Remember to thank your Republican elected officials for fair treatment and to curse the name of Democrats because they denied you fair treatment.
Lois Lerner, head of the Internal Revenue Service’s tax-exempt organizations office, said at a hearing into the IRS's targeting of conservative groups on Wednesday, May 22 that she has done nothing wrong but declined to answer lawmakers' questions, invoked her constitutional right against self-incrimination. (Video: AP) So it always has been with the Democrat political machine.

Not sure what you're asking. If you are getting disability payments and receiving a pension, the pension would be taxable. If it's strictly payments for disability then it probably is not. The 1099R form would tell you if it's taxable or not.
