What happens to my pension when I die?

You might have heard that when you die your pension just disappears. Luckily, that’s not true. In most cases, you can choose someone who relies on you for financial support (known as a dependent) to be paid a fixed amount of your pension, but you’ll likely have other options too. Aviva Financial Advice will help you understand your situation and prepare for the future— whether that’s tomorrow or the year twenty one hundred.
