Thank you for your question.

I am aware that my ex wife has no claim but will a portion of my monthly pension be paid to my second wife in the event of my death

Expert:  Clare replied 4 years ago.
Hi
Your widow will receive the widow's pension in the usual way - if you ask for a breakdown of the pension it should tell you what the proportion will be
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further information
