You move apart – remember to change your pension scheme

If you have nominated your partner as named beneficiary, your partner will generally receive your pension or cover on death – even if you are not living together.

So, remember to change the nomination of beneficiary.

We also recommend that you check that your pension scheme provides sufficient cover for you as a single parent if you become sick or have an accident.

If your financial situation is particularly tight for a month or two, you might consider postponing your pension contributions. However, we recommend that you contact us for more information about what impact it has on your pension scheme.
