Customer Question

Five years ago I married a Belgian EU citizen. I have not claimed for the married couples allowance and I am not sure if we are entitled to one. Furthermore, I am 73years old and wonder what pension entitlements my wife may have when I die.

You can only claim the married allowance if one of you was born before 6 April 1935. Your wife would typically have pension entitlements after your death but some schemes need you to nominate her as your beneficiary so you should get in touch with your provider and discuss this. Happy to discuss further. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
