Death in Service

Should you die whilst in active service, your spouse, next of kin or personal representative should contact your Manager.

HR will notify the Administration Team, who will then write to your spouse, next of kin or personal representative as applicable, to request any certificates or documentation required (e.g death certificate).

The Administration Team will:

  • return the original certificates
  • advise your beneficiaries of any benefits due
  • obtain Trustee discretion to pay benefits where necessary
  • claim the Life Assurance sum from the Insurer
  • set up any payments due accordingly

Please ensure your “Nomination of Beneficiary form” is kept up to date. Download a copy of the form from the Document library.
