A Pension Appraisal is a Must

Calculating the value of a defined benefit — the old-fashioned company pension – can be difficult because defined benefit pensions have what is known as present value, or time value of money, that is, what today’s money is worth tomorrow, which can make calculating their value difficult.

No one should attempt to divide a pension without first getting it appraised. Very often neither party in a divorce can negotiate the fair division of pension plan without a competent pension appraiser first making an appraisal.

A pension plan can be the most valuable asset a couple divides in a divorce.  It is much too valuable not to take care.
