Your pension partner has special rights regarding your pension. If you are married, your spouse is automatically your pension partner, unless you have been living separate and apart for three or more years.
If you are not married but live with someone in a spouse-like or common-law relationship, this person will be considered your pension partner once you've been living together for three years in a row. This period can be shortened if you have a child of that relationship, either by birth or adoption.
If you have any questions about your personal situation as it relates to your MEPP pension, you can contact Member Services directly.
