Death benefit scheme

Death benefit scheme

Prospect’s death benefit scheme offers a lump sum payment to a dependant of a working* member who has died.

The payment is to help with funeral expenses or to provide for children under 18, and is at the discretion of the union’s national executive committee.

The lump sum is equivalent to five times the union’s highest yearly subscription rate (£1,095.60 in 2018).

* This scheme is not open to retired or unemployed members.
