Should a pensioner need to escalate a problematic query on the compulsory death benefit and top-up medical aid cover, they can contact the Pensions Office on pensionerqueries@eskom.co.za. This escalation will need to include a history of the query, previous correspondence and related documentation.

These extraordinary queries will then be forwarded to the Eskom Insurance department who will endeavour to resolve the query with the third party service provider.
