Help a Member Who is Divorcing?
For most members of the Texas Municipal Retirement System (TMRS®), their accumulated benefit is one of the most valuable assets that they own. It is very important that any divorce decree involving a member of TMRS specifically state to whom that benefit is awarded, or how it is to be divided.
Please have employees who are divorcing contact TMRS directly!
You may also direct employees to review the TMRS Divorce Before Retirement Publication. The publication includes a copy of the TMRS Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO) form and will help members understand how the benefit may be awarded or divided upon divorce.
If an employee has questions or concerns, have him/her contact the TMRS Member Service Center at 800-924-8677.
