What Is a Qualified Domestic Relations Order?
Financial accounts set up specifically for retirement are referred to as “qualified” accounts because the earnings qualify for tax-free growth until withdrawal at retirement age. Millions of divorcing couples have qualified accounts set up either as 401(k)s, individual retirement accounts (IRA) or annuities through their workplace pension plans. When determining the value of the qualified accounts, it is important to take into consideration the future growth of the investments, at the age of retirement. Attorney Miller relies on the expert advice of QDRO specialists to determine the value and draft a QDRO document that clearly sets out the provisions of how the qualified funds are to be divided.
