Thank you for your question.

I am sorry for your loss and this is clearly not helping matters.

In my experience a death in service benefit should be paid out within two and at most three months of death. This'd has clearly not happened here and you should be looking for an explanation as to why not, possibly via your solicitor.

Happy to discuss further.

Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
