Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: I am my husbands 3 rd wife, my question is how his CCP pension will be divided between his ex, will they be entitled to get the half even if they are not of retirement age? He was married yo each of them for over 10 years and are elegible for the division, neither work. They were house wives.
So, for example... if he gets $1000 when he retires in CCP, does that mean he gives one $500 and the second one $250 of his half for 10 years?

Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

The way this works is that when someone has a spouse and then they separate or divorce they can apply for a CPP credit split. Then each spouse shares in the other spouse's credits over the course of their relationship.

The credit split can be done at any time and then when the person wants to start receiving their CPP the amount they get is based on the credits they have in their account.

Do you see what I mean?

I am sorry, but I am not clear on how it works.... so the ex’s will get half of his CCP check? Or if in the time they were married he accumulated $5000, she will for 10 years receive payments totalling her half $2500 ?

I am going to make up an example using fake numbers but you will see what I mean I hope.

When your husband was married to his first wife, lets say that over the course of their years together she received 100 credits and he received 300 credits.

The do a credit split and he gets 50 from her and she gets 150 from him. They both end up with 200 credits.

Then during the second marriage he earns 200 credits and she earns nothing. He gives her 100 credits. She gives him nothing. He has 300.

So now when it is time for him to get his CPP it is based on the 300 credits plus whatever other credits he earned over the course of is life that were not split.

He gets paid based on the credits in his account.

It makes no difference when his former spouses apply or what they get.
