QDRO Wording


#1

I had a QDRO drawn up through my ex’s Retirement Fund website. My question is since were are legally seperated (divorce & QDRO will be done at same time), should the order state:

The Alternate Payee is the “former” spouse of the Participant.

or should it say:

The Alternate Payee is the spouse of the Participant.

Thanks,

Since the actual QDRO will be entered after divorce, the term former spouse is appropriate.
