New guidance on State Pension sharing
On 4 February 2016, the Department for Work and Pensions published guidance on the sharing of State Pension entitlements on the termination of a marriage or civil partnership. This guidance also includes overseas proceedings.
The new State Pension comes into force from 6 April 2016 and this guidance is intended to help explain how sharing will affect people who reach State Pension Age on or after that date.
You can read the full guidance here. If you'd like to find out more about State Pension please click here.
