Types Of Benefits In Military Divorce
There are many different types of benefits for military members. During the divorce process, benefits are typically divided based on a number of factors, including the number of years of the marriage and the number of years served in the military.
- The most common types of benefits that are divided in the divorce process include:
- Retirement and pension benefits
- Medical and health benefits
