Using QDROs to Enhance Your RevenuesView Session
The goal of this discussion is to enlighten financial professionals, investment advisors, attorneys how to use QDROs as an additional revenue source, as well as basics of how and when QDROs apply – whether it be to secure a spouse’s share of retirement as an asset, lump-sum alimony, or child support and child support arrearages. All potentially lump-sum distributions for investment purposes with the investment advisors in mind. Secondly, the discussion explains how the CDFA helps advise parties on the best course of action – whether to divide a retirement plan/account by a QDRO or offset a retirement account’s value. Topics covered include business development, understanding QDROs, and QDRO distributions for investment purposes, effectively using QDROs as a powerful tool in child support enforcement, what plans can or cannot be divided by a QDRO or like order, and liability issues. Whether the listeners are interested in preparing QDROs for family law attorneys, dividing retirement accounts in divorce, or simply having a desire to understand which plans allow lump-sum distributions, the QDRO field is wide open for those who want to learn while at the same time enhancing their revenues.
