Following a separation, you and your former spouse may decide, together, to partition the benefits accrued in a pension plan.
Before applying for partition
To make sure that you make the right decision, you can apply for an estimate of the benefits accrued in a pension plan. This application can be made while you are attending family mediation sessions.
To apply for partition
On the basis of a written agreement with your former spouse, and within 12 months following the breakdown of your couple, you can apply to the plan administrator for partition.
