Customer Question

If I get married and subsequently get divorced, would my wife be "entitled" to my pension. I am 60 years old, retired, and not get a monthly pension. I would like to know what would happen to my pension in the case of divorce.

The way this tends to work is that a legally married spouse, and sometimes a common-law spouse in certain provinces, will share in the increase in value of the pension over the course of the marriage or relationship.

However, in your case you are retired and so your pension will not increase in value so there will be nothing to share.
