My Marital Status
 
Employer sponsored pension schemes can provide much more than a pension for scheme members. Additional benefits paid on the death of a scheme member are very common and should anything happen to you, then your partner, children and dependants may be entitled to:
  • An income
  • A lump sum
These additional benefits are often valuable in their own rights, although they are quite easily overlooked.
 
Your marital status is important in your pension planning for a number of reasons, but not least because it will determine what, if anything would be payable in the event of your death.
