When can retirement benefits be collected


#1

If you are awarded (or agree to) a percentage of your ex-spouses’ retirement fund , when can you begin collecting-- is it at your usual retirement age, or do you have to wait until your spouse reaches retirement age? Is it enough, in the latter case, that your spouse has attained retirement age in order for you to begin collecting, in case spouse decides to defer retirement?

                                                                                                               thanks

It depends on what the Plan dictates.
