Life certificates

How do the scheme administrators check that I am still eligible to receive a pension?

You may occasionally be asked to provide evidence that you are still alive and entitled to receive your UK Atomic Energy Authority scheme pension.  This may include completion of a Life Certificate which the scheme administrators may send to you for completion.  Separately, the scheme administrators regularly compare the Scheme's pensioner payroll with official databases.  The purpose of these checks is to quickly identify any scheme pensioners who may have died and so prevent or minimise any overpayment of pension.  Where an overpayment does occur the administrators will take steps to recover an overpayment.
