What is the 10-10 rule? We ask Texas attorney Jillian French in this AskTheLawyers™ Quick Question.
The 10-10 rule only means that DFAS, the entity that's in charge of the pay tax and the retirements for military, will not pay a former spouse directly if they were not married for 10 years during 10 years of military service. This does not mean that the former spouse is not entitled to any retirement if they are not married for 10 years, only that the service member would then have to pay them directly for their portion of military retirement versus being paid directly through DFAS.
