WRS Military Service Credit:
Military Service, Divorce and Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDROs)

A Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) account may be divided at the termination of a marriage or domestic partnership by a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO)(ET-4926) issued by a court.

If you served in the military and are eligible for WRS military service credit at the time of a QDRO, part of your years of active military service may be granted to your former spouse or domestic partner.

In response to the receipt of a QDRO,the Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF) sends out our QDRO Military Service Certification and Affidavit (ET-4322). The certification and affidavit must be submitted to ETF within 30 days of the entry of a QDRO. (Note that the QDRO Military Service Certification and Affidavit(ET-4322) should only be used in the event of a divorce, legal separation, or termination of domestic partnership.)
