The Moneyologist: My ex-husband left me his $150,000 pension — his sister says it was an oversight

Dear Moneyologist,

I have read and enjoyed your column for several years, but never imagined that I would find myself in a position to be writing you for advice. However, recent events leave me seeking your help.

In early November, I learned that my 63-year-old ex-husband died. It had been 17 years since we parted ways and at least five or six since I had seen him, but I felt the loss. You couldn’t know Larry and not feel the world was a little poorer without his expansive personality.

Three weeks after his death, I received another shock — a notice that I was the beneficiary of a $150,000 pension from his employment with the State of Wisconsin.
