You may need specific information about your LGPS benefits as part of the proceedings for:
- a divorce
- judicial separation or nullity of marriage
- dissolution, separation or nullity of a civil partnership.
Complete the divorce and dissolution of a civil partnership information request form for this information, including an estimate of the cash equivalent value (CEV) of your pension rights. The Court takes this value into account in your settlement.
You usually get one free CEV estimate each year. Any other costs for supplying information or complying with a Court Order will be recovered from you and/or your ex-spouse or ex-civil partner in accordance with the schedule of charges for divorce procedures.
We acknowledge all correspondence received about divorce or dissolution proceedings in writing within 20 working days. If no acknowledgement is received, you should contact us. Please note that the process to provide a CEV estimate can take up to 3 months.
