Information for Dependants
This page is where you'll find information if you are a dependant, or a representative, of a current or former member of the BOC Pension Scheme (BOCPS) or the BOC Retirement Savings Plan (the RS Plan).
What to do if a member has recently passed away
If a member of the RS Plan or the BOCPS has recently passed away, their pension is probably the last thing you’ll want to think about, but there are some steps you’ll have to take. We’ve made the process as easy to follow as possible.
1. Inform us about their death
To make sure their pension benefits are administered correctly, you will need to inform the Trustee about their death. To let them know, please download, fill in and return either:Pension information' at the bottom of this page.

Once BOC Pension Services has received your form, they will get in touch with you about any next steps.

When the person whose dependant’s pension you are now receiving was working for BOC, they could have been a member of ‘The Retirement Savings Plan (the RS Plan)’, ‘The BOC Pension Scheme (BOCPS)’, or even both.
If you are unsure which is relevant to you, here is a bit more information:
The Retirement Savings Plan (The RS Plan)
The RS Plan is the open defined contribution plan for all employees since 1 July 2003.
If the former employee joined the Company on or after 1 July 2003, it is likely that they were a member of the RS Plan.
The BOC Pension Scheme (BOCPS)
BOCPS is the defined benefit scheme that closed to new members on 30 June 2003.
If the former employee joined the Company on or before 30 June 2003, it is likely that they were a member of BOCPS.
