What information is required to tell West Yorkshire Pension Fund of a bereavement?

To ensure a smooth process, try to have the following information on hand when notifying West Yorkshire Pension Fund of a death:

  • Member’s pension scheme number and employee number
  • Their National Insurance number
  • Date of Death and personal details
  • The name and contact details of the person dealing with the death – don’t forget, if this isn’t you, that you will need to receive their permission to be able to pass on their details
  • If possible, any information you have regarding anyone who was financially dependent upon them at the time of their death, for example a spouse or civil partner, or children

What Happens Next?

Once told of the death, West Yorkshire Pension Fund will take the necessary next steps. Should further information be required of you, they will contact you. They will automatically pay pensions to a surviving spouse or civil partner.
