Death

If you die, your partner and/or children may receive a benefit payment from the pension fund.

  • Your partner receives partner’s pension.
  • Your children are entitled to orphan’s pension.
  • The law states that an ex-partner (if you have one) is entitled to part of the partner’s pension: the amount of partner’s pension that was accrued up until you divorced.

What else do you need to know?
The amount of partner’s and orphan’s pension depends on your situation at the time of your death. All the amounts appear on your annual pension statement (Uniform Benefit Statement (UPO)).

What should your surviving dependants do?
We will contact your surviving dependants in the event of your death. We can only do that if we have your most recent details. Do you live abroad? Please notify us of any changes.
