Splitting

When calculating the pension, a couple’s combined income during the years of their marriage is divided equally between them. The division of the spouses’ combined income only takes into account calendar years in which both were insured. Splitting occurs as soon as both spouses have reached the reference age, are divorced or if a widowed person is entitled to an old-age pension.
