Getting married

Step 1 - Understand how marriage affects your pension entitlement

If you get married or enter into a civil partnership, your spouse or civil partner may be entitled to benefits from the Scheme.  Further information is contained in the Scheme booklet.

Step 2 - Keep the Scheme informed

Bring your marriage certificate and spouse's birth certificate to the Pensions Department.

If you are not based at Yeovil or have left the Company, call XPS to arrange for your marriage certificate and spouse's birth certificate to be sent to them.

Step 3 - Who would you like to receive your benefits when you die?

Following your marriage, you may wish to update your Wishes Letter (which you can download below).
