Is my pension credit affected by re-marriage?

This news article was published on 21 Dec 2021

Your pension credit is entirely independent of your ex-spouse’s or civil partner’s LGPS pension. Your ex-spouse’s or civil partner’s remaining pension will not be affected if you re-marry or enter into a new civil partnership. Similarly, your pension credit is not affected by a change in your ex-spouse’s or civil partner’s marital status.

Your pension credit rights could be subject to a pension sharing order if a future marriage or civil partnership ended in divorce or dissolution.
