This section clearly explains death benefits. It’s important members and their families understand what benefits they are entitled to.
Death benefits help to provide peace of mind for our members and financial security for their families.
A DFRDB death benefit may be payable to your eligible dependants or your estate if you die. Eligibility criteria are set out in the DFRDB Act.
Dependant eligibility differs if a member has died in service or after retirement.
See our online guides for potential benefits:
- Death benefits in service quick guide
- Death benefit after retirement quick guide
- Dependant's benefits factsheet
- DFRDB Book
If you're the family member or representative of a deceased member or pensioner, you should contact us to assist with the death benefit process.
