If so, leading independent, owner managed pensions, investment and insurance consultancy Lane Clark & Peacock LLP believes you and thousands of other women may not be aware of your pension rights.  

Divorced women who reached state pension age before 6 April 2016 (i.e. who fall under the “old” state pension system) may be entitled to an uplift by way of their state pension, provided that they are not entitled to the full state pension, by relying on their ex-husband’s National Insurance record. This uplift took place automatically for women who divorced (and did not remarry) before reaching state pension age on 6 April 2016. However, women who have divorced after reaching state pension age on 6 April 2016 must contact the Department for Work and Pensions to make such a claim and therefore, in the event that you believe you fall within this category of women, you should notify DWP immediately.
