The partition of benefits accrued under a public-sector pension plan in the event of the breakdown of a union between de facto spouses is now possible

As of 1 January 2019, the partition of benefits accrued under a public-sector pension plan is possible for de facto spouses in the event of the breakdown of their union.  For more information, see the terms and conditions on our website.

The regulatory amendments come following the introduction, in the Act respecting the implementation of recommendations of the pension committee of certain public sector pension plans and amending various legislative provisions, of provisions providing for partition between de facto spouses and the possibility for those spouses to obtain a statement of benefits.
