Pension Protection Fund: Pension compensation sharing on divorce etc.
Through this consultation he Department for Work and Pensions seeks views on two sets of draft Regulations.
The Pensions Act 2008 and the draft Regulations will enable pension compensation provided by the Pension Protection Fund (PPF) to be shared when a person seeks a divorce, a dissolution of their civil partnership or an annulment of their marriage or civil partnership. This will mean that the former spouse or civil partner of person who is a member of the PPF will be able to receive a share of that person's pension compensation.
This consultation is primarily aimed at PPF members, potential members of the PPF, pension professionals; particularly those who may be involved in divorce, dissolution of civil partnerships and annulment; and the legal profession; particularly those involved in divorce, dissolution of civil partnerships and annulment. However, we would be interested in views from any source.
