Who will get my benefits?

Lump sum death payment

We make the final decision on who to pay the lump sum to. We will normally pay this to who you have asked us to.

You can let us know your wishes by filling in an Expression of wish for payment of death grant form.

Survivor’s pensions

Survivor’s pensions are payable to your husband/wife or your civil partner or nominated cohabiting partner.

If you would like benefits to be paid to a cohabiting partner they will need to meet certain criteria.

Children's pensions are payable to any eligible dependent children you may have when you die.

Please contact us if you want to know more.
