A piece in yesterday’s Times:
A charity has called for changes to divorce settlements to prevent women from missing out on money. Age UK said that many divorcing women did not realise that they were entitled to seek a share of their husband’s pension pot. It argued that it should become the norm for pensions to be considered alongside other assets. A government spokesman said that courts could already grant an order to allow pensions to be transferred as part of a divorce settlement.
Because women deserve proceeds not only from men’s existing assets and income, but income possibly decades away in the future.
