In the unfortunate circumstances that an LGPS member passes away whilst in active employment, it is required that you firstly notify the Fund via an Exit interface, submitting the following documents using a document upload workflow:
  • Copy of Death certificate
  • Copy of Birth certificate
  • Copy of marriage/civil partnership certificate (if applicable)
  • Copy of eligible children’s Birth certificate (if applicable)
  • Form PP2 (completed by the member's spouse/eligible cohabiting partner and eligible children)

It is a preference that all members complete an expression of wish form whilst participating in the Fund to support the Death in Service process, however, please note the administrators of the Pension Fund have the absolute discretion on who should be awarded the death gratuity.

For information of potential benefits payable, please refer to Death Benefits – still paying in.
