The Pennsylvania Superior Court considered the proper way to account for a pension in a divorce and equitable distribution action. The defendant’s pension did not allow for survivorship benefits to an ex-spouse. As a work-around, the trial court ordered the plaintiff to take out a life insurance policy on the defendant and for him to contribute to the monthly premiums. The plaintiff appealed. The Superior Court held that no prior decisional law precluded such an arrangement and the appellant presented no viable alternative. Thus, the Court affirmed.
