Complete your Expression of Wish form online

It’s easier than ever to tell us who you’d like to receive your pension money if you die before it’s claimed. You can now make and update your Expression of Wish online.

Having an Expression of Wish form is an essential part of your pension with the E.ON UK Group of the Electricity Supply Pension Scheme. It’s important to keep it as up to date as it can be so that the ones closest to you receive a cash lump sum from your pension if you die in service. It’s not something we like to think about, but having the peace of mind that you’ve had your say on this very important matter is invaluable. And it’s so quick and easy to do online!

It takes just four simple steps to complete your Expression of Wish form online. Here’s how:

Step 1: Log in to your myESPS account.

Step 2: Once you’ve logged in, hover over ‘My details’ in your home page menu and select ‘My nominations’ from the list. You can also scroll down to ‘My nominations’ and click ‘Update my nominations.’ On the ‘My nominations’ page, click the button that says ‘Add Expression of Wish’.

Step 3: In this section, you state the person (people, or organisation) you wish to benefit. You need the following details about them:

  • Title, first name and surname, or name of organisation
  • Address and postcode
  • Your relationship to that person (there’s an ‘Other’ option if you’re not related or legally linked).

For the ‘% of lump sum’ field, you choose the percentage of your lump sum benefits you would like to go to that person, people or organisation. The percentage of the total must add up to 100%.

There is now a declaration that you should read and then you should click ‘Preview’.

Step 4: You can now review your Expression of Wish. If you want to change anything, click ‘Edit Details’. Otherwise, click ‘Submit’.

If you wish to keep a paper copy, you can now print these details.

If your personal circumstances change after you have completed your Expression of Wish, you can change your choice at any time, by going to ‘My nominations’ and clicking ‘Update nominations’ in your online account.
