What survivor benefits will be paid if I die in service?
An ongoing pension is provided for your:
This pension is payable immediately after your death for the rest of their life and will increase every year in line with the cost of living.
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 your pension is subject to a Pension Sharing Order issued by the Court following an earlier divorce or dissolution of a civil partnership, or is subject to a qualifying agreement in Scotland, your spouse’s, civil partner’s or eligible cohabiting partner’s pension will be reduced in consequence of that Court Order or agreement.
