Military Retirement and Divorce

MilitaryAs of 31 January 2013, 1,429,995 people were on active duty in the armed forces, with an additional 850,880 people on reserve. With those large numbers, the division of military retirement benefits upon divorce has become a big issue. Property division during divorce is already a very complicated issue, but throw in federal laws and tax consequences of dividing military retirement benefits, and the degree of complexity increases tenfold.
