ZCashBuilder Information Sheet
If you die while you are still working for a Zurich company, the current terms of our death in service benefit provides that the ZPen trustees will pay a lump sum of 4 times your pensionable salary. You can nominate who you would like to receive this benefit. The nomination is not binding on the trustees and they will consider your circumstances when you die and distribute the benefits as appropriately as possible.
Go to www.zpen.info to register to use the Trustees secure website where you can manage your ZCashBuilder Investments, get illustrations of the pension benefits available and complete your nomination form.
This page summarises the ZCashBuilder and death benefits structure currently available to you. All details of the Zurich Financial Services UK Pension Scheme and associated benefits will be documented in due course by the Zurich Pension Scheme Trustee in the trust deed and rules. These will take precedence over the descriptions on this page. The Members’ Guide, available on www.zpen.info, provides a fuller summary of scheme details.
Your rights to benefits under the scheme arise from the formal trust deed and rules and any contract between Zurich and you. Nothing on this page overrides the trust deed and rules or any such contract.
The company reserves the right to amend or discontinue the scheme. All amendments require trustee consent. Prior consultations will be undertaken with affected members when required by statute.
