In the unfortunate event of the death of a pensioner, it is important that the Pensions Office is informed as soon as possible, so that we can prevent an overpayment and ensure that any death-related benefits are paid promptly to the next-of-kin.


When reporting the death of a pensioner, please telephone the Pensions Office as soon as possible, and have the following information to hand:


  • Name of Deceased
  • Date of Birth
  • Date of Death
  • Address at time of death
  • Your Name
  • Your Relationship to the deceased
  • Your Contact details


A certified copy of the Death Certificate will need to be sent to the Pensions Office as soon as possible. If you do not wish to put this in the post, then an appointment can be made for you to bring the certificate to us in person. Please contact the Pensions Office to arrange for this.
