Civil Partnerships
 
On 5th December 2005, the Civil Partnership Act 2004 came into force. The Act enables same-sex couples to form a legal relationship, known as a civil partnership. If you enter into a civil partnership, you will be given similar rights to married couples in relation to a number of issues.
 
These include pension rights.
 
This Factsheet looks at the main issues about same-sex relationships in respect of pension benefits that you should be thinking about when it comes to retirement planning.
