Customer Question

I lived common-law for over 20years to a retired principal. His ex-wife and her were divorced. I was designated as the beneficiary on his pension. He was retired and receiving a pension for OTIP. His children have been nosing around OTIP and wonder if they can challenge the designation of me being the beneficiary??
Thanks for your help

I am sorry for your loss.

They have no such right. You were not only designated as the beneficiary but you were the common law spouse.

His ex-wife has no claim to this pension.
