Document If a scheme member claims their pension as a one off lump sum (trivial commutation), will there be any dependant's pensions paid when they die?

If a scheme member takes their pension as a one off lump sum, through trivial commutation, there will be no dependants pensions payable on their death as these benefits are included in the trivial commutation calculation.

For more information, please also see the Trivial Commutation Factsheet on the NHS Pensions website.

The above does not apply for members who took their pension as a one off lump sum due to serious ill health, please see related article If a scheme member claims their pension due to terminal illness, will there be any dependant's pensions paid when they die? for information on what dependants pension is payable in this scenario.
