    Answered . I assume by processing you mean the plan administrator is determining whether the DRO is qualified. Generally you do not need to be available during the qualification review but the administrator will send all information in writing so if you're not available to pick up your mail then you won't know if the DRO has been qualified or rejected until you return.
