Merchant Navy Officers Pension Fund


Death of a member

This section provides information on what dependants should do on the death of a member, and gives details of the benefits that will be provided to your widow/widower, child(ren), civil partner or unmarried partner, and other beneficiaries in the event of your death.

Please use the Expression of Wish form to let us know who you wish your DB MNOPF death benefits to be paid to, and to update us if your wishes alter, or your personal circumstances have changed, for example, if you have married or divorced.

If a relative was a member and has passed away, please call or email myMNOPFpension as soon as possible. It would be helpful to have details of the deceased’s MNOPF Membership Number and National Insurance number to hand when you call, but not essential. More information on what to do if a member dies can be found here.
