Unfunded Public Sector Schemes – useful information for Pension Sharing

Public Sector Pensions have changed over the years, meaning that we now have a number of different sections within each scheme. This can make it confusing when it comes to trying to negotiate a settlement for Pension Sharing.

For example, it is not always obvious at what age a pension credit will be paid and if there are a number of sections to a scheme, will one Annex share them all?

In this article, we take a closer look at the Unfunded Public Sector Schemes – these are the ones that do not have a pot of money behind them, so a Pension Sharing ex-spouse is offered internal membership, rather than an external transfer out.

Guide to Good Practice on communication

The introduction, development and evolution of new methods of resolving family disputes for changing families means there is a need for us all to look at how we communicate as members of Resolution; with our clients, with other members, with our clients’ former partners if they are not represented by a lawyer, with other members of our clients’ families, with other non-member lawyers, barristers, judges and more widely within the family justice system.
