Q. When planning an immediate retirement under FERS after 30 years and beyond minimum retirement age and divorced for over 15 years, is either party required to produce a divorce decree during the retirement process to show no retirement money is due or not due to the retired employee’s ex-spouse after retirement?
A. Yes. You’ll find the requirement to provide that information in the Application for Immediate Retirement: Section E of Standard Form 2801 (CSRS) or Section C of Standard Form 3107 (FERS).
