Employee Trust Funds
On July 11, 2011, the Department of Employee Trust Funds submitted a proposed rule amending section ETF 20.35
to the Wisconsin Legislative Council Rules Clearinghouse. The rule is in relation to Qualified Domestic Relations Orders.
This rule is not subject to s. 227.135 (2)
, as affected by 2011 Wis. Act 21
. The statement of scope for this rule, submitted to the LRB on January 19, 2011 and published in the Administrative Register No. 662
on February 28, 2011
, was received by the LRB prior to the effective date of 2011 Wis. Act 21
The proposed rule amendments are needed to reflect changes to receiving and processing qualified domestic relations orders (QDROs) at the Department. This rule-making is needed to incorporate language for QDROs received from domestic partnerships, to address tax concerns under IRC S. 415(b), and to clarify and provide ETF with more flexibility in handling QDROs.
Agency Procedure for Promulgation
A public hearing is required for this rule. The hearing date, once scheduled, will be preceded by a notice of public hearing pursuant to ss. 227.17
