Military Retirement Accounts

When military member divorce, they often would like to know whether or not they need to divide their military pension. 

As it stands at the time of this video, military retirement accounts do not start accruing in some cases until 10 years of service in the military.  Make sure that you know how long you or your spouse have served in the armed forces, if you have a question about your retirement. That 10 year mark is very important.

Even if one spouse does not have a military pension, he/she may still have a Roth IRA or independent brokerage account that may need to be divided.  Talk to an attorney, so that you know which questions to ask.
