Do I need to complete a form?
If your marital or partnership status changes, you can complete a Change of Personal Details Form, so that the Trustee is aware of your current Qualifying Spouse. If you are in receipt of a Total Incapacity Pension or a Partial Incapacity Pension, you should also update your SOCPF Death Benefit Form for Incapacity Pensioners.
What if I have a partner but am not married or in a civil partnership?
In the event of your death, a dependant’s pension may be paid to an Adult Dependant, at the discretion of your Employing Company, if there is no Qualifying Spouse. See the Assurance for Non-Married Partners factsheet (factsheet will be available shortly) for further details.
