Make sure we know who you want your money to go to

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.

See the names you’ve already given us 

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.

Update the names of your loved ones 

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.
