What is a pension rights adjustment?

The pension rights adjustment is carried out in the context of the divorce.

During the marriage, the spouses obtained pension rights. As part of the divorce proceedings, these pension rights will be offset.

When will the pension rights adjustment be carried out?

Generally, a divorce will not be announced before the pension rights adjustment has been carried out.

Exceptions:

  • The marriage lasted less than 3 years and neither one of the spouses requested a pension rights adjustment.
  • Foreign law that does not contain a similar concept is being applied.
  • The maintenance settlement has been excluded in a pension rights adjustment.

According to § 18 VersAusglG, the pension rights adjustment will not be carried out in the following cases:

(1) The family court shall not offset mutual entitlements of the same sort, if their difference in value is minimal.

(2) Seperate entitlements with a minimal compensational value shall not be offset by the family court.

Exclusion of the performance of the pension rights adjustment pursuant to § 27 Abs. 2 VersAusglG
