Are there any time limits that death lump sum benefits need to be distributed by?

There are no time limits as such. However, if you die before age 75, HM Revenue & Customs state that failure to return all information or documentation, to enable us to pay out your total benefits within 2 years of being notified of your death, could result in tax being applied.
