I am in the process of obtaining a divorce, will my NPF benefits be affected?
They can be. Federal law provides that an NPF benefit may be divided by a duly qualified domestic relations order (commonly referred to as a ‘QDRO’). When the NPF receives a qualified domestic relations order, it forwards to the Participant and ‘Alternate Payee’ an acknowledgement and a copy of QDRO Procedures and other material that may be helpful. Learn more about the NPF’s QDRO Procedures, and review Model QDRO’s, or you can contact the Fund Office.
