Domestic Relations Order (DRO)
If you are a member or pensioner whose pension is subject to equitable distribution based on a divorce, or if you are an ex-spouse of a member or pensioner and are entitled to a portion of your ex-spouse’s pension, you must submit a Domestic Relations Order (DRO) to NYCERS.
Frequently Asked Questions
Here are the questions most often asked by NYCERS members (and the answers!). Because laws are constantly changing and the variety of plans is vast, all answers should be read as introductory rather than definitive.
