Address Community Property Settlements

1-2+ Years Before Retirement


ACERA cannot pay your full retirement allowance if community property was earned and you are now divorced or you’ve dissolved your state-registered domestic partnership without a court order instructing how to pay an ex-spouse or ex-domestic partner, or an agreed upon waiver of interest. Please review our page on Divorce or Domestic Partnership Dissolution for more information on how your account will be impacted by a divorce and how to resolve any outstanding items.
