Understanding the division of retirement benefits

Between pensions, individual retirement accounts and 401(k)s, it can be quite complicated to determine how retirement funds will be divided in a New York divorce.

If the parties negotiate a different equitable distribution choice or the court modifies the formula, a different amount of the pension may be awarded to the ex-spouse.
