Hi, thank you for your question. For divorce settlement purposes the value of your pension is not what you can extract, but rather the cash equivalent value. This is the total pension pot you have accumulated as calculated by your pension company. To be sure of what your pension is valued at you will need to contact them and request the Cash Equivalent (CE) Value or Cash Equivalent Transfer Value (CETV) and they have a duty to provide this to you. This value will be what is considered for divorce purposes.
