Understand how retirement can be affected by divorce

When someone decides to end a marriage in Texas or in other locations around the country, how retirement will be affected is likely not the first issue that comes to mind. However, it is definitely a topic that needs to be addressed, according to a financial services website. In fact, roughly a quarter of baby boomers believe that their divorce will have a negative impact on their retirement and force them to stay in the workforce longer. Experts stress the importance of considering the potential impact on retirement plans now and taking action sooner rather than later.

Blended Retirement System will affect military divorce

On Jan. 1, 2018, a new Blended Retirement System will go into effect for military members in Texas and everywhere around the country. The new system will certainly have an impact on retirements. However, other areas will be affected as well, particularly military divorce. Experts predict that divorces among military personnel can become more challenging than before.

Be sure to consider retirement accounts in a divorce

Dealing with finances is often a complicated issue among married couples in Texas or elsewhere around the country. The issues surrounding money can become even more complex when a couple decides to get a divorce. Couples need to deal with the division of property, which can be an emotional process as well.

Military divorce creates complex issues

The life of a spouse of someone who serves in the U.S. military has its good and bad points. You certainly had moments of great pride at your spouse's accomplishments. The joy of reuniting after a deployment may have overshadowed the months of separation and uncertainty. You may have found it exciting to move as your spouse was stationed in new places such as Texas, or perhaps the distance from family and the loneliness of unfamiliar locations wore you down. Whatever your personal situation may be, facing a military divorce is likely stressful and upsetting.
