Guidance notes
Please read the following guidance carefully before completing your Death Benet Nomination form.
1. If you are a member of classic, you can only nominate one individual or one organisation to receive
your lump sum. The organisation can be incorporated (for example, a bank) or an unincorporated
body (for example, a partnership or rm of solicitors).
2. If you are a member of one of the other schemes (classic plus, nuvos, premium or alpha), you can
nominate:
a) one or more individuals; or
b) one incorporated organisation or one unincorporated body; or
c) one or more individuals and one incorporated organisation or one unincorporated body.
3. The total percentage of death benets you allocate must add up to 100%. If you do not give a
percentage, we will divide your death benet equally between the people or organisations you
have named.
4. You must sign and date the form.
5. Your witness must sign and date the form on the same date that you sign and date it. Your witness
must not be one of your nominees.

Important information
1. This nomination will replace any previous lump sum death benet nominations you have made.
We will send you a conrmation letter after your death benet nomination details have been
updated.
2. Your nomination is not binding on the pension scheme. If for some reason the scheme does not
pay benets to someone you have named (for example, your nominee has died), we will pay the
benets to your personal representatives (the people who deal with your nancial matters after
your death).
3. You should make sure that you keep your death benet nomination(s) up to date. Your Annual
Benet Statement contains details of your death benet nominee(s). You can also check your
death benet nomination(s) on the Pension Portal.
4. An individual nomination will not be valid, if, at the time of your death:
a nominee was your husband, wife or civil partner at the time you made your nomination and
your marriage or civil partnership has since ended; or
a nominee has died; or
a nominee was convicted of your murder or manslaughter.
5. If you get divorced or your civil partnership is dissolved and your nominee was your spouse or civil
partner, your death benet nomination for them will become invalid. In this instance, if you wish to
nominate a new beneciary, you can do so on the Pension Portal or by submitting a new Death
Benet Nomination Form. Any other existing nominees would remain unaected.
6. In the case of a divorce or a dissolution, in some circumstances the court may order that all or part
of any death benet is to be paid to your former husband, wife or civil partner.
If you get divorced or your civil partnership is dissolved and your nominee was your spouse or civil
partner, your death benet nomination for them will become invalid. In this instance, if you wish to
nominate a new beneciary, you can do so on the Pension Portal or by submitting a new Death
Benet Nomination Form. Any other existing nominees would remain unaected.
For classic plus, nuvos, premium and alpha members, should part of your death benet be ordered
to be paid to your former spouse, the remainder of your benet would be paid to your other
nominees.
7. The pension scheme must pay death benets within two years of your death. If we are unable to
contact your nominee (s), or if there is no valid nomination, we will pay any death benet to your
personal representatives.
