Survivor's pension payable to your eligible children

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version
Children's pensions are payable to eligible children and increase every year in line with the cost of living. 
 
The amount of pension depends on the number of eligible children you have and:
 
Where an independent registered medical practitioner certifies that, during the period used to determine assumed pensionable pay, you were working reduced contractual hours because of the ill health which led to death in service, the assumed pensionable pay is calculated on the pay you would have received during that period had you not been working reduced contractual hours.
 
If you are in the 50/50 section of the Scheme when you die this does not impact on the value of any pension for your spouse, civil partner, eligible cohabiting partner or eligible children.
