When Does Military Retirement Distribution begin

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)?

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.


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.
