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

Answers are provided by Robert S. Kaufman

Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO)

(Posted July 4, 2012)

Question 883: When a divorce takes place and the Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO) divides the Tier 2 benefit, does it stop accumulating at that time? If the railworker divorces and then has 7 more years of work, would the QDRO for the former spouse include anything past the date of divorce?

Answer: I'm not an attorney nor do I give legal advise. Your question is better directed to an attorney who handles divorce cases who is experienced in the partitioning of retirement benefits. The local Bar Association can help you find an attorney with that experience.


Important notice:

Answers are provided as general guidance on the subjects covered in the question and are not provided as legal advice to the questioner or to readers. Any legal issues should be reviewed by your legal counsel to apply the law to the particular facts of this and similar situations.

The law in this area changes frequently. Answers are believed to be correct as of the posting dates shown. The completeness or accuracy of a particular answer may be affected by changes in the law (statutes, regulations, rulings, court decisions, etc.) that occur after the date on which a particular Q&A is posted.
