Northwest Carpenters Individual Account Pension Plan

Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO) 

If you were divorced at any time during your career as a carpenter and your divorce decree or property settlement agreement calls for a division of benefits under the Northwest Carpenters Individual Account Pension Plan, the plan will require a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) before dividing benefits. Please contact Retirement Services at Northwest Carpenters Trusts for assistance with this process. A copy of the QDRO procedures is available, without charge, from Northwest Carpenters Trusts and online at

For additional information about QDROs, please see Article 9.0.
