SUPPORT ORDERS AND ATTACHMENTS OF BENEFITS

Are retirement allowances and refunds subject to attachment to satisfy support orders?

Pursuant to the Act to Improve the Massachusetts Child Support Enforcement Program, if a member owes past-due child support, his or her retirement allowance (or contributions to Annuity Savings Funds if the member has requested a refund) can be attached to satisfy a child support order. Other support orders issued pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws, c. 208, c. 209, c. 209A, c. 209C or c. 273 may result in an attachment of your retirement allowance. No support order can create a benefit or entitlement to a benefit that would be inconsistent with the retirement laws.
