Survivor's pension payable to your eligible cohabiting partner
The pension payable to your eligible cohabiting partner is calculated on a different proportion:
- 1/160th of the pensionable pay (or assumed pensionable pay where applicable), plus
- 49/160ths of the amount of any pension credited to your pension account following a transfer of pension rights into the scheme from another pension scheme or arrangement.
For final salary membership built up before 1 April 2014, the pension payable is equal to:
- 1/160th of your final pay times the period of your membership in the Scheme after 5 April 1988 and up to 31 March 2014 (including any additional membership purchased by you), upon which your deferred pension is based, plus
- any of your membership before 6 April 1988 for which, under an election made prior to 1 April 2014, you have paid additional contributions so that it counts towards an eligible cohabiting partner's pension.
