Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Is the Financial advisor completing forms regarding the pension in general
Then it is likely that he wishes to establish proof of identity and proof of your relationship for the Pension Company to allow him to deal with any spouse pension that you would be entitled to in the event you are widowed
I hope that these are of assistance - please ask if you need further details
NO it is not likely that they were needed for anything else, yes if there is a widows pension it would go to you, it is possible that if it is in fact simply a partners pension he could nominate someone else - but the Trustees of the Pension Fund may be able to overrule that
