The Scheme pays a dependant’s pension to your spouse, civil partner or other nominated dependant for the rest of their life. If you’re not married or in a civil partnership, and left service after 1 October 1987, you can nominate:
- a partner
- an aged parent
- a disabled child who can't support themselves financially.
If you’re married, we’ll ask for the following so we can set up a dependant’s pension, and pensions for any eligible children:
- Death certificate (photocopy)
- Birth and marriage certificates (originals or certified copies)
- Bank form.
We then arrange the pension from the next available pay date, which is the 15th of each month.
