Consultation description

This consultation sought views on 2 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.
