The pension fund for nurses ("Pensionskassen for Sygeplejersker")
Not established that the terms for cohabiting partner's pension of a pension scheme had been fulfilled
After the death of B, A claimed that a cohabiting partner's pension should be disbursed to him from the pension fund for nurses, where B had been a member. According to the pension terms, one of the conditions for disbursement of the cohabiting partner's pension was that A and B had lived together without interruption for a period of at least two years prior to her death.
The Court was not satisfied that A fulfilled the pension agreement's terms for receiving a cohabiting partner's pension. Among other things, the Supreme Court gave importance to the facts that A and B had not had a joint officially registered address, that B had lived with her mother for the past nine months before her death, and that on the evidence it had to be considered that B had left A because she no longer wanted to live with A.
The High Court had reached the same conclusion.
