What insurance benefits could I receive?
In the event of permanent invalidity you will be paid an invalidity benefit based on the lump sum you would have received if you had worked to age 60. You can elect to take this benefit as a pension or a combination of a pension and lump sum.
In the event of your death, your eligible spouse and/or dependants will be paid a percentage of the pension you would have been paid if retired on invalidity grounds.
