Survivor's pensions

When you die, we may pay a pension to your husband/wife or your civil partner or your nominated cohabiting partner and any dependent children.

The amount of pension is based on how long you were in the fund, your pay when you retired, and any dependants you leave. The pension will be payable for life to your husband or wife or your civil partner or your nominated cohabiting partner even if they remarry.

Important

If you got married after you retired, not all your membership may count towards a pension for your husband or wife, civil partner or cohabiting partner.

How much pension will my survivors get?

The amount of a survivor's pension depends on a number of factors - please contact us for the details applicable to your circumstances.
