Claim of Spouse to Interest in Member's Pension (Form 1)

Use
After a marriage breakdown (divorce) in British Columbia, the Member's spouse may submit the Claim of Spouse to Interest in Member's Pension (Form 1) to notify the Plan Administrator of the spouse's legal interest in the Member's Pension. A formal agreement with the Member, or a court order must state that the spouse is legally entitled to a part of the Member's Pension.


Information Needed to Complete the Form
To complete the form, the spouse must include:

  • Plan information,
  • spouse's personal information,
  • Member personal information, and
  • information related to the spouse's claim.

Notes
Once the Administrator receives this form from the former spouse, it must provide the spouse with information regarding the Member's Pension and notify the spouse before it acts on any directions given by the Member.

In accordance with current legislation, to be designated as a Limited Member of the Pension Plan, the spouse must also complete the Request for Designation as Limited Member of Pension Plan (Form 2).

If, as a Limited Member of the Pension Plan, the spouse wishes to receive a transfer of the lump sum value of his/her proportionate share or receive a separate Pension, the spouse must complete a Request by Limited Member for Transfer or Pension (Form 4).

If the agreement or court order between the spouse and Member was made prior to July 1, 1995, the spouse should complete the Request in Relation to a Matured Pension Divided under an Agreement or Court Order made before July 1, 1995 (Form 5) instead of this form.

Questions on completing the form should be directed to the Plan Administrator.

Completed forms should be forwarded to the Plan Administrator.
