Death Benefit Nomination Forms – 05 and 15 Armed Forces Pension Schemes
All Armed Forces Pension Scheme Members in the 05 and 15 Schemes should ensure that their nominations for death benefit are up-to-date, as the benefit forms are legally binding and any benefit will go to the nominee, even if there has been a change in the member’s circumstances. Your admin office will be able to advise. There have been instances where Service Personnel have not updated the forms and then Death Benefit has been paid to previous partners/nominees etc much to distress of the SP’s current family.
The relevant form is available from the Gov.uk website here:
In addition we are asking Unit HR to ask personnel to check that this form is up to date as part of the Station Arrivals process.
