Division of Marital Property
___________________

Supreme Court Ruling
on Treatment of
Teachers’ Pensions
in Divorce Proceedings


QDRO forms are listed below ...

On April 13, 2010, House Bill 289 was signed into law.  This legislation, which became effective on July 15, 2010, requires KTRS to accept Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (“QDROs”).  QDROs may be issued by a court of law to award a portion of a member’s service retirement allowance, disability retirement allowance or termination refund for the benefit of a spouse, child or other dependent.  Members’ retirement allowances were already potentially and conditionally subject to classification and division as marital property as a result of the Kentucky Supreme Court ruling in the case of Shown v. Show, 233 S.W. 3d 718 (Ky. 2007).  The effect of House Bill 289, therefore, is that a member’s retirement allowance, or termination refund, can now be divided by a court between the member and ex-spouse as KTRS issues payment, rather than a court ordering that the payment be divided by the member once he or she receives it.  

KTRS has promulgated an administrative regulation, 102 KAR 1:320, which sets forth the procedures for filing a QDRO with KTRS.  The administrative regulation also incorporates by reference the forms necessary for processing a QDRO, including the QDRO form itself.  KTRS will administer a QDRO prospectively; however, the QDRO must be on the form designated by KTRS in order to be accepted or enforced.  Links to the QDRO forms and the administrative regulation 102 KAR 1:320 can be found below this paragraph.    KTRS cannot provide legal advice to members.  Therefore, if you have questions about how a QDRO or the Shown case might apply to your individual circumstances you should consult with your attorney.

The printed language Qualified Domestic Relations Order to Divide Kentucky Teachers’ Retirement Benefits (QDRO) CANNOT BE ALTERED. The QDRO will be rejected by Kentucky Teachers’ Retirement System if the printed language is altered in any manner. (See KRS 161.700 and 102 KAR 1:320).
