Life cover

Life cover in the scheme did not change from April 2015 for the majority of members. If you die in service whilst an active member of the scheme the scheme will still provide a lump sum payment of three times your annual pensionable pay. The only difference from April 2015 is that pay for part-timers from non-contractual overtime (up to a max of full time equivalent hours) is included in your annual pensionable pay figure.

However, iyou are paying into the Scheme and have deferred and/or pension membership then only one death grant will be paid.  This will be whichever is the highest amount of either the active membership or any deferred and/or pensioner membership added together.

You can also continue to express your wish as to who you would like any death grant to be paid to by completing and returning an expression of wish form.  Expression of wish forms are available from your pension fund.
