"A slight change in verbiage can alter an award to an alternate payee by tens of thousands of dollars, to the detriment of the plan participant spouse or the alternate payee. The same is true in the valuation of pensions and the assumptions used."
The services provided by Voit Econometrics are not limited to any particular state or states with regard to QDROs or pension valuations, since pensions, and the Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDRO's), which divide pensions pursuant to a divorce, are governed under federal laws such as ERISA, REA, and the Internal Revenue Code. Therefore, regardless of the state in which you practice, Voit Econometrics Group can be of service.
Retirement plan valuations in divorce are crucial if the desire is to offset the value against other marital assets. Avoid flawed valuations usually performed by those who on occasion value pensions. Have a pension valuation done professionally and defendable in court if necessary, by someone who values pensions every day. A search of the case law around the country illustrates just how Voit Econometrics Group, Inc. is above the rest.
