How to make a claim to your former spouse's pension

Learn how to make a claim to your former spouse's pension and get information about the pension.


As a former spouse   of a plan member, you may want to claim your share of the pension or allow information about the pension to be shared with others, such as a lawyer.
 

You can do this by sending us Form P1 Claim and request for information and notice.

This form tells us that you are claiming an interest in your former spouse’s pension. It also gives us permission to send you information about your former spouse’s pension and the pension plan.

You will be entitled to receive copies of documents about your former spouse’s pension. These documents can be used by an actuary to calculate the value of the pension.

If you separate from the plan member before they retire, you are entitled to receive a copy of your former spouse’s Member’s Benefit Statement.

If you separate from the plan member after they retire, we will send you information stating the pension option and beneficiary information.

Once you submit Form P1, we will tell you if your former spouse has:

  • Stopped working for an employer that participates in BC's Municipal Pension Plan
  • Retired

You can also use this form to give us permission to share information about the plan member’s pension with others, such as a lawyer.
