The starting point is to conduct the pension Provider and ask for a copy of the Rules as the answer to your question is specific to that pension scheme.I have traced what I believe to be the scheme rules online herehttp://pensions.forecms.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/RULES-January-2012.pdfand if I am correct that these are the rules then you can retain the pension after remarriagePlease ask if you need further detailsClare
