Getting divorced

Step 1 - Understand how divorce could affect your pension entitlement

Your pension is a valuable asset that can be taken into account in a divorce settlement.

Step 2 - Keep the Scheme informed

Inform the Pensions Department of your divorce.  You may have a Pension Sharing Order, change of name documentation and a new address.

If you are not based at Yeovil or have left the Company, call Aon Hewitt to arrange for this information to be sent to them.

Step 3 - Who would you like to receive your benefits when you die?

Following your divorce, you may wish to update your Wishes Letter (which you can download below).

The 'Divorce and your Pension - what to expect' guide (which you can download below) may help answer your questions.
