Family Law Forms
There are currently two sets of family law forms that may be used by plan members and their spouses, and plan administrators, throughout the pension valuation and division process. To allow time for transition, the prior FSCO family law forms and updated FSRA family law forms will both be available for use until April 30, 2022. Either sets of forms may be used interchangeably during the transition period. For example, a plan administrator may use FSCO’s Statement of Family Law Value even though the plan member may have completed FSRA’s Application for Family Law Value. Effective May 1, 2022, the updated FSRA family law forms must be used for all steps in the pension valuation and division process that occur on or after that date.
