Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is***** am a licensed lawyer from the UK.
Don't worry, you don't have to pay or to call, that is merely an automatic suggestion by the platform.
Are you based in England or Scotland?
Then I would rather let a Scottish lawyer answer your question. I will opt out of the question, thank you.
If you marry your partner your existing widow’s pension will stop unless the scheme says otherwise. You should have the scheme checked. As regards ***** *****’s pensions he can usually nominate you as the person to whom the pensions will go in the event of your death. That again depends on the scheme. Many pension schemes work that way and the pension doesn’t form part of the deceased’s person’s estate. Where there is an annuity involved it would normally go to the spouse so the advice you have been given by one of the pension companies does not sound right and this should be double checked at a more senior level or preferably with the written details of the scheme. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that JustAnswer credits me for my time.
