8.1.3 Where there is only one entitled person and that person is not a spouse


(and furthermore there were no other applicants) the basic 'Death Determination' template in the Defcare database may be modified to suit the circumstances:

  • Firstly by deleting the words 'your spouse' in the first line and substituting the employee's full name.
  • Secondly by changing the reference to 'spouse amount under S17 of the SRCA' to 'primary SRCA amount' or similar phrase, or alternatively and by deleting the reference to the SRCA child's amount entirely if this amount is not payable.
  • Thirdly by removing any reference to the spouse amount under the Defence Act (i.e. not payable) and/or reference to the child's amount under the Defence Act if appropriate.
