Pension benefits from remarried father


Q. My father left my mom and me many years ago and remarried. He passed away a number of years ago. He was a federal employee, and his second wife got his benefits. Am I as his daughter able to receive benefits from his pension? He stopped sending us a check of $50 when I was 16.

A. No.
