Updating your nominations

The Scheme may pay benefits to your dependant(s) in the event of your death. You can nominate who you want to receive these benefits, which might include a lump sum (only if you die within five years of retiring from the Scheme), a dependant’s pension, children’s pensions, and a bereavement grant.

Nominate someone to receive the lump sum

Nominate someone to receive a dependant’s pension

A dependant’s pension is automatically paid to your spouse or civil partner 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 isn’t able to support themselves financially.

In the event of your death, the people you have nominated will need to provide evidence of their financial dependency or interdependency.
