Document If a Scheme member has less than two years’ membership, what pension would their partner receive if the member dies in membership?

If a Scheme member has less than two years membership and dies before they leave the Scheme or retire, their spouse, civil partner, or nominated qualifying partner will receive a lump sum on death equal to the equivalent of two years actual pensionable pay for 1995 Section members, or two years actual reckonable pay for 2008 Section members.
 
For members of the 2015 Scheme the lump sum is equal to two times the relevant earnings in the last 12 months of pensionable membership.

A limited adult dependant's pension is payable to a spouse, civil partner, or nominated qualifying partner for six months at the same rate of pensionable earnings the member was receiving on the date of death, they will only receive a continuing adult dependant's pension if at the date of death the member was over their Normal Pension Age.
