Received CSA 1099-R--STATEMENT OF ANNUITY PAID--is distribution for divorce settlement of ex-husbands retirement. Box 2a: UNKNOWN, no box 2b. Federal State taxes: NONE.

This CSA 1099-R is for the distribution of a divorce settlement from 25 years ago. I was awarded a percentage of ex-husbands retirement in the divorce decree, and now that he has retired, the OPM determined the set amount that I am due to receive and it is being paid out monthly. The only amount listed is the GROSS DISTRIBUTION and the only boxes on this form are: 1,2a,4,7,9b,12,13.
