Many employers offer senior employees Death-in-Service as part of their competitive package of benefits. Typically this entitles the employee to a lump sum payment to the employee's beneficiaries if the employee passes away whilst still in active service for the company. Whilst the benefit is common place, not many employers understand what their obligations as trustees are or what to do when a claim is made.

Michelle Seddon, senior associate in our Private Wealth Group has been advising the trustees of large employers on their roles and duties as well as the resulting payments under the scheme. In the first of our two part series of articles on this benefit she takes a closer look at this benefit, the duties it creates for trustees and steps to take when a claim is made.
