Getting divorced

Find out how divorce can affect your pension

Understanding your options

The idea of divorce is likely to be a difficult time for most. There’s a lot of things you may need to consider. Your home. Your children. And your pension.

Divorce is a big life change that could impact your retirement plans. So it’s important to think about how you’d like your future to look and understand how divorce could affect your pension.

You’ll have three main options when it comes to dealing with your pension:

  • Offsetting
  • Pension sharing
  • Earmarking

To find out more about each option and for more information, see the Divorce factsheet. To find out how much you’ll need to pay when requesting your pension information in relation to divorce proceedings, and how to make your payment, take a look at our Divorce information charges form.
