107(1)This rule applies where a deceased’s scheme entitlement is no more than the amount for the time being applicable in relation to the enactments mentioned in section 6 of the Administration of Estates (Small Payments) Act 1965 (c. 32).
A deceased’s “scheme entitlement” is the total of—
(a)any amounts due to the deceased under the scheme at the time of death, and
(b)any amounts payable to the deceased’s personal representatives under the scheme (ignoring any amounts due by way of interest accruing after death).
(2)Where this rule applies, the Fund trustees need not require confirmation or other proof of title before paying amounts due to—
(a)the deceased’s personal representatives, or
(b)any person appearing to the Fund trustees to be beneficially entitled to the deceased’s estate.
(3)The recipient of any amount so paid is to be liable to account for that amount (and the Fund trustees are to be relieved from any such liability).
