    had your dad actually claimed his pension, or is it a pot?

    I know when my Dad died, as mum had died the year before, then the fund effectively died with him there is no right of the children to get anything. He had claimed his pension for five years.

    Not sure what happens if he is pre retirement though.

    Had your father retired before he died? If he had retired and started receiving his pension, you are unlikely to be due anything.

    What you may or may not be entitled to will depend specifically on the rules of the specific Pension Scheme.

    You need to to talk to the company. Nobody else can answer your question.

    Some information here, for example:
