Life Cover - Survivors' Pensions

If you die, your widow, widower, civil partner or eligible cohabiting partner will receive a pension equal to: 

    1/160th of your final pay times the period of your membership in the Scheme up to 31 March 2015 upon which your pension is based, plus

    Your accrued pension for membership in the Scheme after 31 March 2015 recalculated as if it had built up at a rate of 1/160th, plus

    1/160th of your assumed pensionable pay for each year of membership that you would have built up from your date of death to your normal pension age, plus

    49/160th of the amount of any pension credited to your pension account following a transfer in.

  • (The pension payable to an eligible cohabiting partner is only based on the period of membership after 5 April 1988.)
