Death benefits

Death in service

If you die in service, a combination of a cash sum equal to four times your pay and a pension payable to your spouse or dependant may be payable.

Death after retirement

When you buy your pension through another pension provider on the open market you may choose to provide a spouses pension in the event of your death.

How can I be sure the benefits on my death go to the right person?

You need to complete a Nomination of Beneficiary Form which will ensure the Trustee is aware of your wishes in the event of your death in service. You need to keep your nomination up to date. A Nomination of Beneficiary Form is available to download below.
