Death Benefits

If you die while a deferred member of the LGPS, your spouse, registered civil partner, nominated / eligible cohabiting partner, next-of-kin or person dealing with your Estate must inform the Dyfed Pension Fund immediately.

A lump sum death grant is payable if you die while a deferred member of the Scheme. However, the rate at which its calculated is dependent on whether you left the Scheme before or after 1 April 2008.

You are able to nominate an individual(s) or even an Institution(s) to receive the payment of your death grant.  In order to do so, you will need to make a death grant expression of wish by completing the appropriate form. Alternatively, you can update your expression of wish via the My Pension Online service. Where NO nomination has been made, payment of the death grant will normally be made to your Estate or Personal Representatives.

Left on or before 31 March 2008?

If you left the Scheme on or before 31 March 2008, the death grant payable in respect of your deferred benefits in the event of your death will be 3 times the value of your deferred pension at your date of death i.e. your automatic lump sum. For the appropriate Death Grant Expression of Wish form, please click here.

Left on or after 1 April 2008?

If you left the Scheme after 1 April 2008, the death grant payable in respect of your deferred benefits in the event of your death will be 5 times the value of your deferred pension at your date of death. For the appropriate Death Grant Expression of Wish form, please click here.

Please Note

The Dyfed Pension Fund retains absolute discretion as to whom it pays your death grant to. In the event of a dispute, the payment will be made to your Estate or Personal Representatives.

Be mindful that you will need to keep your death grant expression of wish up to date, at all times. If there is any change to your previous nomination, you will be required to update your expression of wish by completing a new Death Grant Expression of Wish form or updating online.
