Hi all, This is a situation in Scotland where law may be different but thought I’d ask generally. My close friend worked extensively in the North of England then came to Scotland, to the same school I attend, where he was for four years until he passed away suddenly, in March (non Covid related) this year. His ex wife and teenage children live in the North of England and reached out to me saying that because he apparently nominated no dependants on his England and Scotland teachers’ pension, his funds could not be paid to his surviving family. The assumption was that his children would receive payments or a lump sum immediately on his passing. His family are deeply hurt and frustrated. All expenses have had to be shared since March between my friend’s sister and ex wife. does this situation seem above board?
