The British Columbia Law Institute recently published the Report on Pension Division: A Review of Part 6 of the Family Law Act, which calls for reforms to how pensions are divided between separating spouses. The report is the culmination of more than two years’ work by BCLI’s Pension Division Review Project Committee, which since 2019 has been examining pressing and emerging legal issues in pension division.

Committee Chair Colin Galinski, and Committee members Jacqueline McQueen and Beatrice McCutcheon will provide an overview of the Report and discuss a number of specific recommendations.

The Report contains 25 recommendations for reform, addressing the following topics: death of a spouse; waiving survivor benefits after pension commencement; commuted value: transfer and calculation; disability benefits; locked-in retirement accounts and life income funds; private annuities; forms; administrative fees; and transitions.
