What is the Van Loan Formula?

View All Legal Services »

Ever wonder how the heck we figure out who gets what when trying to divvy up a pension? Who was that Van Loan guy anyway? Our own David West represented Mrs. Van Loan, arguing that she had a community interest in Mr. Van Loan's military retirement benefits, even though the benefits had not yet vested. The trial court, and later the Arizona Supreme Court, found that Mrs. Van Loan's interest in the pension was one-half of the fraction of the number of years of the marriage over the number of years he had served in the military, if and when he received the pension. Hence, the Van Loan formula was born.
