New downloadable, fillable forms help divorced members
If a member of a public pension gets divorced, the court may order that a portion of their pension be paid to an alternate payee such as a former spouse or dependent child. For active or deferred members, this order is known as an Eligible Domestic Relations Order (EDRO). For retired members, it is known as a Domestic Relations Order (DRO). To make things easier for you and your attorney, ORS has developed downloadable, fillable forms to allow our members to create accurate and complete EDROs or DROs that can be administered under the retirement statutes:
Eligible Domestic Relations Order (EDRO) (R0259H)
Eligible Domestic Relations Order: Background and
Domestic Relations Order (DRO) (R0323X)
Domestic Relations Orders: Background and Instructions (R0912X)
These are the preferred documents to file with the Office of Retirement Services. They are the fastest, most efficient way to complete your filing. Complete it online, save it, print it, then take the printed copy to the court for the judge's signature.
