Stop, Look & Listen: Railroad Retirement Benefits Q&A

Answers are provided by Robert S. Kaufman

Will a Court-Ordered Partition of a Tier 2 Benefit Filed After Final Divorce Decree Be Recognized by Railroad Retirement?

(Posted March 17, 2012)

Question 862: Will RRB honor a court-ordered partition of the rail worker's Tier 2 Benefit, obtained by way of an ex parte proceeding several months after the initial divorce decree (not included in any divorce decree nor part of an updated divorce decree)?

Answer: I'm not an attorney, and my column does not give legal advice.

Your divorce attorney should contact the Railroad Retirement Board's Office of General Counsel, 844 North Rush Street, Chicago IL 60611 to determine the effectiveness of the order.
