Federal Employment-Related Benefits in Divorce

Divorce is stressful.  Much of the stress is tied to uncertainty about what “life after divorce” might look like.  For Federal employees and spouses, questions linger about what employment-related benefits can be impacted by a court order.  Our firm’s website provides a wealth of information about how a Texas divorce decree can impact benefits of both Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) and Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS) employees. 

Some people benefit from reviewing information from multiple sources.  In that vein, we’re pleased to mention that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) published a booklet entitled Court-Ordered Benefits for Former Spouses that briefly explains a few of the topics covered in our website’s section on Federal Civil Service Divorce.  Download a copy of OPM’s booklet today.  It never hurts to have an additional source for important information.
