What happens on divorce or dissolution of a Civil Partnership?

Pension rights are generally always taken into account as part of your assets when the court is arranging a divorce settlement or a dissolution order of a Civil Partnership. The Trustees must comply with any order made by the court in divorce or dissolution proceedings and the order may affect your benefit rights under the Scheme, including any benefits payable on your death. Please note that any work (apart from the initial transfer value) undertaken in relation to a divorce will incur charges on the member or their spouse. Further details are available on request.
