5.09.090 Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDRO).

(Replaced by Ordinance No. 177367; amended by Ordinance Nos. 179417 and 182168, effective October 3, 2008.)


A.  Effective January 1, 2002, court ordered distributions in the form of QDROs are recognized and allowed by the Plan.  The Plan or the Plan’s designee shall adopt reasonable procedures to determine the qualified status of domestic relations orders and to administer the distributions hereunder.  QDROs must be submitted in a form acceptable to the Plan or its designee, and may order Participant Plan assets be divided into a separate account for the benefit of an Alternate Payee.  Distribution of those assets may be allowed as provided in Subsection 5.09.090 B. and C.  All state and federal taxes on distributions from the Alternate Payee's account will be the responsibility of the Alternate Payee and not to the Plan Participant.  The Alternate Payee's account shall be subject to the IRC and Regulations, state law, and the Plan.


B.  If administered by the Plan, the responsibility for the fees provided for under ORS 243.507 shall be apportioned to the Participant and the Alternate Payee based on the fraction of the plan assets received by the Participant and the Alternate Payee at the time the Alternate Payee's interest in the Plan is established.  The apportioned fees shall be immediately paid to the Plan out of the distributions to the Participant and out of the distributions to the Alternate Payee until their respective obligations are paid.


C.  Any QDRO submitted to and accepted by the Plan or its designee may provide that an Alternate Payee may take an immediate distribution of some or all of the assets established in the separate account or make any distribution election from the payout options available to Plan Participants, or may elect to leave the separate account in the Plan, in which case, the Alternate Payee shall have the same rights as a participant under the Plan.
