Qualified Domestic Relations Orders

The Plan is required to pay benefits in accordance with the provisions of a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO). A domestic relations order is a court order which is issued pursuant to a state domestic relations law and which relates to marital property rights and spousal or child support. In order to be considered a Qualified Domestic Relations Order, the order must contain specific provisions with respect to benefits under the Plan.

When the Plan receives a proposed QDRO, it follows specific procedures as required by federal law in determining whether the order is qualified. The Plan also has a model QDRO that is available to Participants and their attorneys, along with a copy of the Plan’s procedures with respect to QDRO’s. This information is available free of charge. If you have any questions regarding QDRO’s, contact the Fund Office.
