Hi, I'm on need of a little advice, if possible, please. I'm a SSAFA caseworker, and have just had an urgent case handed to me tonight. I'm not after money, hence not contacting your charity, but I need to tell my client something (anything?) tomorrow, and as it's weekend, everyone's gone home. So, if you have been a partner to someone for 41 years, but not married to them, are you entitled to access their service pension when they die? My client has been told yes, then no. Understandably, she's a bit teary and upset about the whole thing as she was bereaved not long ago, hence the need to give her some fairly fast answers. I know that I need to speak to the relevant people when they come back on Monday, but I was hoping someone on here could help in the interim. Thanks in advance, and apologies if this should be in the charities/welfare section.
