Pensions & Divorce – Unisex annuities?

Posted March 2nd, 2011

This week’s ruling by the European Court of Justice on gender and insurance may have some far reaching consequences in relation to pensions and divorce.  See here – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-12608777

It will be interesting to see how and if this will be implemented but potentially the areas of pensions and divorce it could affect are:

  • Equalisation of pension incomes.
  • Underlying Cash Equivalent Transfer Value Factors.
  • Final Salary & Money Purchase benefits at retirement.
  • Tax Free Cash Commutations.
  • Duxbury calculations?
