Death and benefits

Once your death has been reported we will write to the contact address given to ask about anything else we need to know and include any relevant claim forms. We will ask for a copy of the death certificate (a clear photocopy is acceptable), and other certificates we may need (for example, a marriage certificate).

  • The pension payments will be stopped as soon possible
  • If any pension has been overpaid, this will need to be reclaimed. Contact us for further details

When we write to you, we will tell you if any death benefits are payable. If appropriate, we will send forms for the claim of partner's and dependants' pensions.
