Changes to your personal information, such as marital status, have an impact on your benefits. It is also a good idea to keep LPF informed of any changes in your mailing address, phone number or email, to assure you always receive important information about your pension.
If you and your spouse are getting separated or divorced, the pension you have earned in the LPF, during your marriage or common-law relationship, is considered to be a part of "family property" and may be divided between the spouses.
If you die before retirement, your surviving spouse is entitled to receive a death benefit equal to the commuted value of your pension. If you die after retirement, the payment of survivor benefits depends on the form of pension payment you elected at retirement.
