Middle-aged female divorcees in retirement funding crisis
Middle-aged female divorcees in retirement funding crisis
Norwich Union
25 Aug 2005 United Kingdom Pensioners & Retirement, Divorce
A new report from Norwich Union Equity Release has found a worrying new trend. Despite modern day divorces providing women with a share of their husband’s pension, women who divorced or separated before the pension rule change are facing retirement money worries. The report found that just 4% of divorced women over 50 have received a share of their ex-husband’s pension pot on divorce or separation. The report found that more than three quarters of women surveyed realise that it is extremely difficult to survive on the current state pension, but are not in a position to put away enough money to build up an adequate pension pot before they retire.
