If I should die whilst on supply...

    No, not an unpublished first draft from Rupert Brooke, but a genuine query, and not one prompted by an imminent Friday afternoon in a Special Measures School with Y11 bottom set Maths and no work set.

    Seriously though, would I be considered 'In Service' if I were to turn up my toes whilst working as a paid to scale supply teacher with an LEA employee number and monthly LEA payslips with Teacher's Pension deductions?

    At what point as a supply teacher am I considered not to be 'In Service', thus denying my widow the TP In Service Death Grant?

  3. As I understand it the Grant would be paid if you were at work or within 12 months of your last day that you worked <u>and</u> paid into TPS.
    If you are considering jumping off a bridge after Y11 bottom set Maths I would urge you to reconsider. The grant would only be paid if you die due to ill-health during the 12 month period.
     
  4. I would also urge you to reconsider the timing. If you've decided to jump, go before Y11 bottom set Maths - why put yourself through it??? [​IMG]
