Hi
I am sorry I am still trying to follow the process.
Do you mean you received all the funds as her surviving spouse - and under the terms of the Will you are holding £25,000 for each of them.
OR
Did the Pension Company pay £50,000 to be held for the children?
Clare

Yes I received all the funds as siviving spouse and holding the 25000 each 4 the kids
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Sorry I the pension gave the money 2 held 4 them

Hi
Did the Pension Company say how long for?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No they dident but as adult I feel it to young 2 give them the money it my wishes that it should be 21
Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
Hi
I appreciate how difficult and distressing this period has been for you but from what you have said rthis money was never yours - it was just paid to you on behalf of the children
If the Pension monies were indeed given directly to the Children then it is payable to them when they attain the age of 18 - and you shoudl be holding the monies in separate accounts so that any interest paid is added automatically
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
