Family Law Orders for Active/Inactive TRS Members
If you are a retired member, click here.
TRS may be directed by a court, via a Family Law Order (FLO), to distribute a portion of your retirement benefits to an ex-spouse. A FLO must comply with all applicable law and TRS must approve each FLO submitted.
Please review the following documents for examples of how FLOs are constructed:
- Example A: TRS Sample Family Law Order - Applies to Active And Inactive Members (Not Retired) and Provides for an Actuarially Equivalent Benefit Distribution to Alternate Payee (Payable for the Lifetime of the Alternate Payee)
- Example B: TRS Sample Family Law Order - Applies to Active TRS Members (Not Retired) and Provides for a Fixed Amount Distribution (Not a Lifetime Benefit to the Alternate Payee)
If you have any questions regarding Family Law Orders and how divorce may impact your Montana TRS retirement benefit, please contact TRS.
