Notifying us through Tell Us Once

Tell us once is a service that lets an individual reporting a death inform many Government organisations in one go. At a stressful time, it saves the individual from having to contact a number of different organisations, and for the organisations themselves, means they get informed of the death quickly, from a central location, and officially, meaning separate verification is not needed.

If a match is found through Tell us once, the Berkshire Pension Fund will receive a formal notification of the death including the next of kin/executor details.
