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

Is a pension taxable with disability benefits?

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.
