Make sure we know who you want your money to go to
Posted on Apr 30, 2019
When you die, we’ll normally pay a pension to your spouse, civil partner or partner if they qualify. We may also pay a pension for any dependent children that you have. We may also pay a lump sum if you die while still working with the bank, or if you die within five years of starting to take your pension.
To make sure we give this money to the right people, please make sure we know about them.
If your circumstances change – for example, you get married or divorced – you might want to change who your money goes to. So if you’ve already given us some names, it’s a good idea to make sure you’re still happy with who you’ve chosen.
In the vast majority of cases, the money goes to the people you’ve told us about. But, while we will always consider your wishes, we’re not bound by them.
