Death Benefit Nomination

Dbn Landing PageThe Civil Service Pensions arrangements don’t only provide pension benefits. In certain circumstances they also provide benefits after your death to the people you care about.

You can complete a Death Benefit Nomination form to confirm who you want to be considered to receive any lump sum benefit. This could be a family member, a friend, a charity, a business or any other organisation.

Click on one of the following links below to access the Death Benefit Nomination form which relates to your current scheme.

Please complete this form in black ink and in block letters and send it to:

Civil Service Pensions Scheme

PO BOX 2017


L69 2BU

  • If you die while still in service (but not if you have partially retired or you’re already in receipt of a pension from the scheme), the lump sum is at least two years’ pay.
  • If you die after leaving, retiring, partially retiring, or taking other Civil Service pension benefits, the lump sum is worked out differently to the description above.
  • Members of classic can only nominate one person or organisation, but members of the other schemes can choose as many nominees as they want and choose how to split the lump sum between them.

You can always check your existing Death Benefit Nominee/s on your Annual Benefit Statement.

For more information, you'll find our 'Quick Start Guides' provide bitesize and easy to understand content which will help you understand more on the subject.
