Kathryn Haigh raised the issue of the payment of death in service lump sums where no nomination had been made by the deceased. A particular instance had been brought to her attention where it had taken almost six months for a payment to be made to the next of kin.


The Head of Fund agreed to raise the issue with Your Pension Service in LPPL with a view to considering how best to raise the profile of the importance of completing death benefit nominations.


Resolved: - That the action proposed, as set out above, be noted and supported.
