I renounced my right to partition of government pension

Customer Question

I renounced my right to partition of government pension credits in my divorce settlement in Quebec. Is there a legal way to reverse that. I am not getting enough money to live on.

Are you talking about CPP retirement pension?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
No. About the Quebec pension plan in particular, but yes to the Cpp as well.
Expert:  Legal Ease replied 3 months ago.

Unfortunately, in Quebec, if there is an agreement that provides that the former spouses will not split their CPP credits then CPP will honour this agreement. The same holds true for your QPP pension.

So the agreement does prevent you from sharing in the pension now.

I am sorry this is not what you were hoping to hear.
