When Does Military Retirement Distribution begin


#1

My STBX will receive a percentage of my military retirement. When would she begin to receive the payment; when the separation agreement is signed, after the divorce is final, or on an agreed on date or event (such as the sale of the marital residence)?


#2

At the time payments are to commence (retirement age).

I am already retired from the military and receive payments. Sorry I wasn’t very clear about that. I was wondering when my SBTX would begin to recieve her percentage.

Thanks!

A military retirement division order will have to be drafted, signed by each of you, entered by the court, and deliver to the plan administrator before her payments will commence.
