Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare and I will do my best to help you.
That depends on the provisions of the pension fund itself.
It is fair to say that most funds these days do NOT penalise a widow/widower for having a new relationship

Hi
I am sorry but you may have misunderstood what you were told.
Certainly in England and Wales there is no claim that you can make on HER income.
If there is a large gap between your income and his then you have a claim for Spouse maintenance - but only in respect of HIS income - not hers
