Are there any Chief Writers out there, or anyone with the knowledge. Putting things in order for when i get my final draft , i need to know, I have rang two departments and got different answers. when i die what proportion of my pension does my wife get? I left in July 1979 with my 22 year pension Answer 1. When you die your pension ceases, your wife is sent a form to fill in, depending on her income(ie other pensions etc) she will get up to 2/3rds of your pension.Could be far less. Answer 2. When you die, your pension ceases, your wife gets a form to fill in. She will recieve full pension for 3 months (91 days i think he said)Then about half of your pension. Does anyone out there have the facts, I`m sure that someone can clear it up. In anticipation, many thanks.
