VCERA Policy

Your VCERA pension is considered a community property asset. Determination of  division of this asset during divorce, legal separation or dissolution of domestic partnership is required prior to retirement or withdrawal of contributions.

VCERA can assist members by providing a pre-judgment summary which isolates the service, contributions, and interest earned during the community property period. This can be particularly helpful during the initial part of the dissolution process. VCERA can also provide Domestic Relations Order (DRO) templates to file with the court.
