Her ex won’t hand over the money that she needs

Dear Amy: My sister retired recently and moved away from her family and to the Southwest.

She purchased a small home in a 55-and-older community and seems very happy. She stated that it was the only place she found that she could afford, relying solely on her Social Security and some savings.

Thirty years ago, she divorced, and apparently in the divorce decree her husband was ordered to invest a sum of money, on her behalf, to be given to her when he retired.

Her ex has been retired now for over five years, and he and her kids are reluctant to give her the money because they are afraid she will just spend it.

I really believe she has forgotten about this nest egg over the years.
