Following On From My Previous Question
So a person dies who lives overseas and receives a retirement pension from this country and supposing the surviving partner does not inform the appropriate authority - will the pension still go on being paid into the bank or is there some way in which that authority will find out about the death without actually informing them. Just asking and a trifle suspicious. Will probably have to don my bullying cape!
Agree with the previous post. Have read newpaper reports of court cases where people have been caught out in the past after a long time. Did she have her own Bank account for the Pension to be paid into? If so he will need to go through the correct procedures with them to get any funds in the account and once the account is closed any future credits would be returned by them advising payer that the account holder was deceased.
