What’s the process?
1. Your next of kin or personal representative needs to notify the pensions team.
2. Within two working days the team will send your next of kin a letter
3. If there’s been an over or underpayment of pension, the team include the details
4. Your next of kin replies and sends us a photocopy of the death certificate
5. The pension payments end.
