UK - Less than 1% of divorce settlements include pension sharing orders, an IFA claims.
And Inter-Alliance believes this low take-up could create a “pensions underclass” in years to come.
Inter-Alliance says that there have been 300,000 divorces since the regulations were introduced in December 2000.
But less than 1% have featured pension sharing or earmarking attachment orders.
Inter-Alliance spokesman Nevin Weakley said: “After the matrimonial home, pensions are frequently the biggest asset in a divorce settlement.”
Labour Party plans to renationalise core industries and require the largest listed companies to hand 10% of shares to employees would be a "double whammy" for pensions, business leaders have warned.
A handful of industry heavyweights have begun trialling a so-called 'mid-life MOT', with positive initial results reported by all those involved.
The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) has announced it will shrink its board by more than one-third as part of a governance overhaul to make it "agile and more appropriate".
