A common question regarding division of pensions is what if I’m not yet vested? Whether or not a plan participant is vested in a plan, that plan can be divided in a divorce. In a divorce decree or an agreement, there still can be a provision for dividing the person’s interest in that pension. At the time of retirement, assuming you did vest in those benefits, that benefit will then be divided.
