Notifying us when a Pensioner Member has died
When a member dies after retiring on pension, their benefits will no longer be payable.
It is very important that the pensioner's surviving spouse, civil partner, eligible cohabiting partner, next-of-kin or person dealing with their Estate notify us of their death as soon as possible to prevent an overpayment of pension.
Please can you complete all appropriate fields of our online form below as soon as possible
To enable us to determine any entitlement to dependants benefits, we will shortly write to the next-of-kin quoted below, requesting more information and all relevant certificates*, including the Death Certificate. Please note that we can accept photocopies of all relevant certificates.
The LGPS Regulations provide, in certain cases, for the payment of pensions in respect of children wholly or mainly dependant on deceased members. If there are any such children under the age of eighteen, or older if still pursuing a course of full-time education, or incapacitated, please let us know as soon as possible, enclosing copies of each child's birth certificate. For any eligible children over eighteen, we will also require evidence of either their continuing education, or their medical incapacity.
Following receipt of your notification, we will write a letter containing forms you will need to complete and return to us at:
Merseyside Pension Fund, Castle Chambers, 43 Castle Street, Liverpool, L2 9SH
