The Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) provides valuable protection for your family if you die in service. Depending on your circumstances it can provide:
- A lump sum death grant – of three times your pensionable pay
- A survivor’s pension – provided to your spouse, civil partner or co-habiting partner
- A children’s pension – payable to your eligible children
If you would like to nominate someone to receive a lump sum death grant, or amend your nominees then please complete a Death Grant – Expression of Wish Form.
To find out more about protecting your family and the benefits available please read the Protection for Your Family factsheet.
The form and factsheet are both available from the Forms and Resources page.
