Thank you for your question
My name is Clare and I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
How long have you been married?
How long have you been paying into the pension?
Does your wife also have a private pension
Yes,she works for the csa.I am also claiming my pension now
I paid into the. Pension for13 years before. I met my wife.
When did you start claiming it?
2 years ago as of yesterday.
What income do you each have?
I earn approximately 1800 pounds a month ,my wife earns 1200 pounds a month.
Your wife does have a claim on your pension - on half of eight years worth - just as you have a claim on her pension.
how significant those respective claims are depends on what the pensions are worth and what other assets and debts there are
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
Thank you Clare.
You are most welcome
