What are an ex-spouse's rights to retirement benefits after divorce?

Question Details:

My husband divorced me 5 years ago after 30 years of marriage. At that time his pension and 401K were divided. He's now going to retire with a large amount of money from his company based on his (high) salary and 40 years with the company. Am I entitled to a share of this? After all, I was married to him for all but the last 5 years of his employment there. What should I do?
