In the case of separation, the ex-spouse(s)will retain their right to the reversion, but the terms and conditions of grant will be processed. Lively debates are to be expected.
While the project of law on pensions begins a new epic of the parliamentary, we know a little bit more on the right to reversion of the spouse(s)divorced(e)s. The topic is sensitive. In order to avoid the faux pas, the government has requested a report to Bertrand Fragonard, president of the High Council of the family, of childhood and of age, and Anne-Marie Leroyer, a professor at the law school of the Sorbonne. Conclusion : the executive retains the principle of a reversion not only to the widowers or widows - who, moreover, never really debate, but also for divorced spouses. A major change from the recommendations of the report of Jean-paul Delevoye, which indicated that the rights of ex-spouses would be closed for divorces occurring after the entry into force of the universal system.

To understand this new mechanism, the secretariat of State in charge of pensions gives the example of a man earning 2000 € pension. After his death, his ex-spouse can collect 55% of the amount of his pension (the equivalent of 1100 €), pro-rated according to the duration of the marriage and the duration of insurance the plan of his universal ex-husband. If the marriage lasted 17 years and that her ex-husband has contributed 43 years of age, this gives 1100 € x 17/43 = 434€.
