Divorce and pensions are very significant. A pension could be a
couple’s most valuable matrimonial asset, in some cases worth more
than the equity in the family home. As such, it is important that
pensions are considered in the financial settlement if a couple decides to
divorce or dissolve their registered civil partnership. All the money
you’ve saved into it (except for your basic State Pension) will be
taken into account when your assets are divided.
