Death of a dependant

If you die while receiving a dependant’s pension, no further benefits will be payable from the Scheme.

The process

  1. 1.

    Your next of kin or personal representative needs to notify Aptia. 

  2. 2.

    Within two working days the team will send your next of kin a letter.

  3. 3.

    If there’s been an over or underpayment of pension, the team include the details.

  4. 4.

    Your next of kin replies and sends us a photocopy of the death certificate.

  5. 5.

    The pension payments end.
