A website for money matters has an advice feature. A woman divorced her rich husband. She is now concerned about her retirement and wants to know if she can get half of her husband’s retirement account, which she said they shared. The adviser stated that as the divorce is final, she may not be able to access this account. He stated that IRAs cannot be shared. She would be entitled to the account if they lived in a state which has shared property laws. He advised seeing a lawyer.
