Your children may also be eligible to receive a pension after you die. For the purposes of the LGPS, a child is someone who, at the time of your death is:
- Under the age of 18.
- Between the ages of 18 and 23 but in continuous full-time education.
- Physically or mentally impaired, which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on their ability to carry out day to day activities.
A long-term pension will be paid for as long as the child continues to meet the above conditions. The rate of pension depends on how many children you have and whether your spouse / civil partner / cohabiting partner is receiving a long-term pension.
