The federal government is an important provider of retirement benefits to tens of millions of Americans. The rights to these benefits arise from many different reasons. For example, pension benefits for federal civilian employees; retired military pay for members of U.S. armed forces; and retirement benefits for private industry employees who worked for a railroad industry employer. These retirement benefits under certain circumstances can be divided in divorce by court orders somewhat like QDROs (although ERISA does not control any of these retirement benefits). We can assist you with understanding these benefits and division of these benefits due to divorce.
