Attachment Order

Also known as an Earmarking Order, stipulates some or all of a policy holder’s pension benefits are payable to an ex-spouse or partner when payment commences. Such orders are granted by court order during divorce, but are now seldom used as they cut across the clean break principle that is often desirable as part of the divorce process.
