Following the 2015 Budget announcement, assuming you die before age 75, pension income paid to your spouse or partner via a lifetime annuity with joint-life, value protection or a guaranteed period is now free of income tax.
Note: Death benefits paid from a scheme pension as value protection, a joint-life annuity or as a continuing guarantee period are not tax free. Be sure to check with your scheme provider to find out how this might apply to your annuity benefits.
