Why is the annual pension payable to my spouse, civil partner or eligible cohabiting partner different in Section 2 and Section 5?

If you die as an active member of the Scheme, any pension payable to your spouse, civil partner or eligible cohabiting partner is based on the benefits that you would have built up in the Scheme until your normal pension age.  Therefore, the figure shown in the death benefits section has been increased to reflect this.  As this enhancement only applies if you die as an active member it is not included in Section 2 – ‘Summary of your pension benefits built up to 31 March 2021’.
