Research indicates that women have, on average, less in their pension pots than men.
In my experience this has largely been correct, as most female clients have had a smaller pension pot available at the time of divorce. However, as part of the financial remedies available as a result of divorce pension sharing (and offsetting) is available. This enables parties to have a clean break, whilst also providing pension provision for both.
It says that, on average, women have £7,500 in defined contribution pension schemes, compared with £14,500 for men.
