2. State Pension Valuation
If your State pension came into payment before 6 April 2016 and your State pension breakdown shows that you have an Additional State Pension element then you will need to provide a Cash Equivalent Value of that Additional State Pension element.
If your State pension came into payment after 5 April 2016 and your State pension breakdown shows that you have a Protected Payment element then you will need to provide a Cash Equivalent Value of that Protected Payment element.
Whichever case applies to you, the Cash Equivalent Value is obtained by submitting Form BR20 to the Department for Work and Pensions.
Click on the Get Form BR20 link below to download the form.
If your State pension breakdown does not show either an Additional State Pension element or a Protected Payment element then there is no need to submit Form BR20.
Please note the following when completing Form BR20:
- In Part 2 give the date that the divorce proceedings started as the current date
- In Part 2 indicate that your divorce is NOT subject to Scottish Law
- Remember you will need your spouse’s details (name, address, date of birth and National Insurance Number)
The completed Form BR20 should be sent to the following address:
