    Death in service policy 9th Nov 18 at 6:11 AM
    Hi, we recently found out after my mother passed away back in march that the company she used to work for had a death in service policy in place. and as the beneficiary I'm entitled to the payment. After applying for probate, and giving all my bank details etc to my mum's old company who had passed that on to Zurich the insurance company. I was just wondering if anyone would know how long payment usually takes on these kind of things? I've asked the company, but they're telling me at this stage I'll hear from the insurance company before they do. But when I ring Zurich for an update they say they can't speak to my regarding it.

    Sorry if this sounds picky... It's just that I spent nearly 20 years working out what LGPS pensioners really meant when they asked questions.....

    But look on the bright side - you are perfectly qualified to tease out what many of the OPs on these boards actually mean when they are confused or unclear.

    (*) Happened at work all the time, but some people get a bit shirty if they think you are "interrogating" them. Bit like the poor OP who withdrew from this board earlier this week because she thought replies were "unkind" and "critical" of the way she expressed herself. I say "poor" because if he or she had persevered I'm sure they would have got useful advice.
