Is a QDRO really necessary to divide retirement benefits?

Frank from Brooklyn, NY asks, "Is a QDRO really necessary to divide retirement benefits?"

Spencer Olsen from Pension Evaluators® at Troyan Inc.®, answers, "The short answer is yes. Federal laws do not permit a retirement plan to distribute retirement benefits to the ex-spose of an employee without a QDRO. Every qualified plan, including defined benefit plans, ESOPs, 401(k) plans, and profit sharing plans, requires a QDRO to divide benefits. Troyan maintains it is unsafe to utilize a plan model format as often times they are a) catered to the pensioned spouse, and b) they lack all the mechanisms to close all areas of exposure to insulate the parties agreed upon award.
