What is a QDRO?


A Qualified Domestic Relations Order ("QDRO") assigns a former spouse all or a portion of a participant's benefits under a retirement plan.

Why do I need a QDRO?


Your portion of your ex-spouse's retirement account will not be secured until your court-executed QDRO has been approved and accepted by the plan administrator.
