Getting divorced

If one of your employees is getting divorced, he/she will have to think about the apportionment of his/her pension.

Pursuant to the law, your employee has to apportion his/her pension as follows:
- the accrued partner´s pension is for the employee´s ex-partner. Consequently,
  any potential new partner will receive less pension from us if your employee
  dies; that is unless the ex-partner waives his/her right to the partner´s pension.
- half of the retirement pension your employee accrued during his/her marriage or
  registered partnership is for the ex-partner; that is unless your employee has
  agreed to apportion his/her pension in a different way.

Your employee must take the following steps
It is essential that your employee informs us how his/her pension is to be apportioned within two (2) years. We will then pay out the retirement pension to  your employee and his/her ex-partner in accordance with the apportionment. 

How to inform your employee

It is important for you to provide information to your employees. You can do so by referring them to this page. We will also provide information to your employees within three months of their divorce.
