Next Of Kin Nomination

The Next of Kin Nomination allows you to name the person or persons you wish to receive your shares and insurance attached to them in the event of your death.

  • A properly completed, valid Next of Kin nomination means we can disburse up to £20,000 to the nominee/s without a will or probate.
  • A valid nomination takes precedence over a will. Where there is both a will and a valid nomination, we will act according to the nomination. Please ensure that both your will and nomination are consistent with your wishes.
  • You may nominate one individual or several persons.
  • You must update your nomination if you marry, divorce or if the nominee dies before you.

To complete, change or update your nomination, visit our Reception desk on Abbey Street or 99 Main Street, Claudy.
