Changing your details

Change of address

Write to us and include your National Insurance number and old address on the letter and we will update our records. You can also download a Change of personal details form and send back to Pensions Services.

Change of name or gender

If you have changed your name, complete a Change of personal details form and enclose a copy of your legal evidence. For example your marriage or civil partnership certificate, or change of name deed.

If you have legally changed gender, write to us at Pensions Services and include your National Insurance number and gender recognition certificate.

Change of partnership status

  • Write to us if you marry or enter into a civil partnership, enclosing a photocopy of your marriage or civil partnership certificate.
  • Write to us if you divorce or your civil partnership is dissolved, enclosing a photocopy of your decree absolute or final order.
  • If you live with your partner but you are not married or in a civil partnership, he or she will only receive a pension if you nominate him or her, and if the nomination is still valid when you die. You must meet certain conditions to make a nomination. See Death in deferment.

Change of nomination details

If you wish to change your death grant nomination details then you will need to complete and return a Death grant expression of wish form.

It is important to keep us up to date with any changes to your details. If we do not hold your current address, we will be unable to send you important communications, such as your annual benefit statement and details of retirement.
