Does the Scheme provide death in service cover?

If you die before you receive your pension whilst an active member of the Scheme from April 2015 you continue to receive death in service cover of three times your annual pensionable pay.

However, if you are paying into the Scheme and have deferred and/or pension membership then only one death grant will be paid.  This will be whichever is the highest amount of either the active membership or any deferred and/or pensioner membership added together.
