ebjmls21 Posted May 23, 2022 Report Share Posted May 23, 2022 This is the first time that I've seen this- a DC participant submitted a "DRO" in which a six figure sum of his DC account will be transferred to his spouse. Participant and spouse are married, not seeking a dissolution of marriage and as far as we know, it is not intended for spousal support. A quick Google search shows that there are some practitioners promoting in marriage qdros as a means of gaining access to pension or DC funds (likely without those pesky plan terms getting in the way). I'm just scratching the surface of my review, but it's hard for me to imagine that this was never tried in the past 30 some years. I seem to recall that there might have been cases of fake divorces just so people could access their pension accounts- why bother going through a fake divorce if you could simply claim a marital property transfer??? I'm curious as to what other people have seen/think of these? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
