Our lump sum payable on death in retirement chart provides more information on the death grant that may be paid.

If you are also an active member of the LGPS when you die, only the highest of your death grant rights in the LGPS is paid. From your rights as an active, deferred and pensioner member, only one (the highest) death grant right is paid. You do not receive a separate death grant payment from each type of membership.

To protect your family make sure you have made a nomination. You can make and update your nominations using SPFOnline. You can alternatively complete a Nomination Form.
