Rising divorce rates and residualisation of the basic pension make it urgent to ask whether divorced women of working age can build an adequate private pension for their retirement. Recent legislation permitting pension sharing represents a welcome recognition of these difficulties, although whether it in fact alleviates them will depend on how the new law is implemented by the legal profession and the courts. This article aims to illuminate the pension prospects of working-age women who are divorced or separated, in the context of the changing legislative framework.
