Death benefits

No one likes to think about what will happen to their dependants if they die, but it is unfortunately a necessary detail. The Scheme provides various benefits under different circumstances - this section explains more about these.

If you have not nominated any beneficiaries - i.e. the person or people who will receive any benefits if you die - or if this information is out of date, you should complete a new form as soon as possible.

Please note that no lump sum is payable from the Scheme if you have been in receipt of a pension for more than five years.
