Armed forces pensions are an important aspect during a military divorce and a valuable asset for those serving in the Army, Royal Navy or Royal Air Force as they are final salary pensions.

Can an ex-wife or ex-husband claim my military pension years after divorce?
Yes, any former partner after a divorce could make a claim against your armed forces pension. This would have to be done by a court order.
How much they could claim depends on various factors including how long you were married and whether your former spouse had their own career and pension fund. And if they were to remarry, it would usually negate any financial claims. Talk to us about your personal circumstance for legal advice that is right for what you need.
