Address Any 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 Before Retirement for more information on how your account will be impacted by a divorce and how to resolve any outstanding items.
