We encourage you to contact us if your circumstances change.
You must tell NILGOSC if:
- you change your name
- you change your address
- you change your email address
- your marital or partnership status changes, i.e. if you have married, divorced, formed a civil partnership or dissolved a civil partnership, or if you have become widowed
It is important to let us know of changes to your circumstances in particular if you move house because if we get undelivered mail sent back to us your pension will be stopped. You can update your details through your My NILGOSC Pension Online account or if you have chosen not to sign up to this service you can contact us by phone 0345 33197 326, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or print, complete and return a Change in Circumstances Form – LGS24 to us in the post.

A death grant payment is only payable under certain circumstances. If you are over age 75 or have been receiving your pension for more than ten years (or five years if you left the Scheme before 1 April 2009) then a death grant will not be paid. More information on death grants is on the Death benefits section.
