Our specialists will cover all you need to know about divorce in this webinar, covering the following subjects:
- How should retirement assets be divided?
- What is a qualified domestic relations order, or QDRO? How do you get one? A judge must sign the QDRO, and the retirement plan must accept and approve it. According to the Pension Rights Center, many women are unable to access benefits that were granted to them by a divorce decree because they are unaware of how to obtain a QDRO, are unable to do so, obtain an order that is rejected by the retirement plan, or are unable to understand the steps involved in submitting the order to a retirement plan.
- Should you put your main residence up for sale?
- How much money should you put up for retirement? It’s crucial to keep saving, if at all feasible, to help you reach your retirement goals, even if your assets set aside for retirement may be fewer than they were in the past.
- When should you file for Social Security benefits using your employment history or the spouse who filed for divorce?
- How much risk are you willing to take with your investments? As compared to when you were married, it can be very different.
- Your assets and income are likely far less than they were when you were married. How would that change your budget?
- Do you have a thorough financial plan that accounts for the possibility that you may have limited resources?
- Do you have a strategy for keeping an eye on and modifying it?
