Benefits for your family and loved ones

The Civil Service Pensions arrangements don’t just provide pension benefits. In certain circumstances, they also provide benefits after your death for your loved ones.  

Some of the other benefits a Civil Service pension offers your loved ones and dependants include:  

  • A spouse/partner/civil partner’s pension 
  • A death benefit lump sum 
  • A children's pension 
  • A Widow’s or Widower’s (WPS) refund 
  • Life assurance cover 
  • Support from our trusted charity partner
