Existence Checks

From time to time we need to check that you are still alive and well. This is entirely routine, for pensioners living in the UK we use a third party provider to verify our pensioners, however for pensioners living overseas we do this by sending a Pensioner Declaration. 

There is nothing to worry about if you receive one of these in the post, but we do need you to fill it in and send it back to us as soon as you can.  We undertake these checks as we have a duty of care to protect our members money and guard against fraud. 

It is important to complete and return the Pensioner Declaration remembering to sign and date the form as well as having your signature witnessed with the witness also signing and dating the form. 

If we do not receive the fully completed Pensioner Declaration we will send you a reminder stating that your pension will be suspended if we do not receive the completed Declaration by a certain date. 

If you are having difficulty completing the Pensioner Declaration, please contact the Fund Office as soon as possible.
