Hi I worked for Company A and paid into their pension scheme, then worked for Company B and paid into their pension scheme, them worked for Company C and paid into their pension scheme.

I kept all 3 pensions and got married shortly after joining Company C.

My questions are:

Do I have to disclose the pensions from before I was married (the pensions from Company A & B)?

Will those pensions be taken into account in financial agreements or does just the pension from when I was married (ie from Company C) get taken into account?

Can anyone help?

You will have to disclose everything. If you are in Scotland I don't think the first two pensions are taken into account. In England and Wales it seems less clear but potentially they can.

Hi Hellokitty,
I am in the same position (In England) Married for 33yrs before X dumped me for another. Paid into pension for 18 yrs, only 10 years counted in marriage. Been told that all of my pension will be takent into account. Doesn't seem fair. Searched forum (and others)and found nothing to support any other decision.
