Notify us of the death of a member

To notify us when a member has died, please get in touch with us as soon as possible. 

Please refer to our Contact Us page to get in touch.

The information we will need about the member includes their name and date of birth, National Insurance number and next of kin details. 

 

If you can also supply a copy of the death certificate. In addition, we would appreciate if you can confirm if the member was married, or had a co-habiting partner as, if so, then we would write out to their spouse/partner as there may be a pension payable.   

 

Once notified we will write out and confirm what benefits are payable and whether certificates may be required. Any certificates provided will be returned promptly and will be treated as confidential while in our custody. Photocopies of certificates will be accepted and only returned if requested. 

 

If you record a death through the Tell Us Once system, we will also be notified through this service.
