I'm pushing to be considered for IHR. I have a few serious ailments and they have said it may be possible. I'm currently on 12 week lockdown due to hitting most of the governments markers for shielding. While I don't think I'm going to kick the bucket soon it's always something someone in my position needs to consider.
I maybe recall a thread where someone who had been given IHR also had their death in service benefit extended past their leaving date but can't find it.

Hi, i have had a couple of member's getting IHR
there are different options you are offered, i have not got all the details but the basics are below
1) immediate IHR with pension etc.. no life cover
2) paid a weekly amount(think it is half pay) for 3 yrs then medically reassessed if no change then payout
but during those 3 yrs you are still covered for life insurance
you should be able to get more info from your DOM or on here.
Hope this helps
