Your partner for our pension scheme can mean:
- the person to whom you are married;
- the person with whom you have a registered partnership;
- the person with whom you have a cohabitation contract from a civil-law notary.
If none of these options apply to you but you had a shared household with your partner for more than six months, they will be considered your partner under the pension scheme.
Good to know: you will need to prove that you have lived together for more than six months. You do this by providing an extract (proof) from the Personal Records Database (BRP).
Is the person you live with your brother, sister or a blood or relative in the direct line (a parent, parent-in-law, grandparent or child)? If so, the person is not your partner for the purposes of the pension scheme.
You can only have one partner for the pension scheme at any given time.
