Nomination (or Expression of Wish) Form
Being a member of the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) can, in certain circumstances, provide a lump sum payment in the event of your death. The exact amount of the death grant will depend on your personal circumstances, including whether you have other LGPS records.
Use this form to nominate who you would like to receive a lump sum in the event of your death.
It is much quicker and easier to complete the form online; head to Oxfordshire Pension Fund to register for or log in to our secure online service.
The Oxfordshire Pension Fund (the Fund), has absolute discretion in paying the death grant. This means the Fund gets the final say in who receives the money, although they will be guided by your wishes. You can cancel or change your expression any time in writing or online and the Fund will respect your wishes as far as possible, but the final decision about payment of the Death Grant will rest with the Fund.
