How will a divorce affect my assets in my retirement fund?

If your claim is submitted electronically via the administrator’s website, you will receive a sms or email from the administrator. Ensure that your contact details on the form are correct. According to the Divorce Act, your pension interest in a retirement fund (pension fund, provident fund, retirement annuity fund or preservation fund) is regarded as part of your assets.

This means that your assets in a retirement fund will be taken into account when determining how the combined assets are divided upon divorce.
