No. Even if the QDRO includes a specific date when the alternate payee is to commence his/her share of the benefits, the alternate payee will not commence his/her benefits until a benefit distribution election form and any other associated paperwork as may be required by the Plan Administrator, is properly completed by the alternate payee. Remember, the alternate payee must contract the plan administrator to request the necessary distribution application forms. These must be properly completed and returned to the Plan Administrator before any distribution will occur.
