The QILDRO form is obtained from the TRS website, http://www.trsil.org. The form is designed to be filled in online and printed, and must not be retyped. No language may be added to or deleted from the form. Be sure to keep a copy of your QILDRO. If you submit a Calculation Order at a later date, you will need the underlying QILDRO to prepare the Calculation Order.
Section IX of the QILDRO form is the marital portion benefit calculation formula. Reviewing Section IX of the QILDRO form may be instructive as you determine a method of calculating the marital value of the pension benefit. The following chart helps you decide whether to complete Section IX.
Regular and permissive service
If you are completing Section IX, “regular service” means service credit earned by the member and also includes repayment of refunded service. “Permissive service” means service credit purchased by the TRS member and also includes unused vacation and unused sick leave that is used to calculate the member’s retirement benefit. Section IX also provides a selection for “other.” This selection is not recommended. All TRS service credit is either regular or permissive. There is no “other” service credit category for TRS members.
