What if I leave Shell?
If you leave Shell employment for any reason, your options will depend on your age and Pensionable Service. They will generally take into account any period of membership of the Shell Overseas Contributory Pension Fund (SOCPF), as explained in the Linked Fund Membership and the Inter Fund Linking Rules (IFLR) factsheet.

If you die in Shell service, as an Active Member, a discretionary lump sum benefit is payable. Immediate pensions are also payable to your Qualifying Spouse and Children.
The main purpose of the SCPF is to provide a pension for members when they retire. You can take your benefits at Pension Age, earlier if you wish, or later if you continue in pensionable employment after Pension Age.
