Someone has died

Step 1 - Understand how death of a member affects pension entitlement

If a family member has died and they were a member of the Scheme, benefits such as a lump sum or pension may be payable.  Please contact the Scheme Administrator, Aon Hewitt, to find out more.

Step 2 - Keep the Scheme informed

Aon will inform you of what information is needed.  This will include the deceased's death certificate.

Step 3 - Who will receive benefits when a member dies?

The Trustees will make a decision based upon the rules of the Scheme and the personal circumstances of the member. They will also take into account any preferences made by the member on his/her Wishes Letter.
