Pension credit

A pension credit is a share of an ex-spouse's or ex-civil partner's LGPS benefits, as awarded by a court on divorce or dissolution of a civil partnership.

It usually consists of a continuing pension from age 65 (or later if the court order was made after then) and, provided the share was granted before your ex-spouse or ex-civil partner drew their LGPS pension, a tax-free lump sum payable at the same time.
