FERS and divorce


Q. I am in the middle of a divorce after 30 years, and my husband’s attorney has requested my TSP statement and a document verifying the benefit and a current plan summary and description of my FERS account. Is my husband entitled to both of my pension benefits and my FERS account?

A. This is really a question for your attorney, but I am not aware of any special protection for either your TSP account or pension benefit in the case of divorce. It’s up to the court.
