Annual Benefit Statements For Deferred Members

If you left the scheme prior to 31 March 2018 and your pension benefits are currently deferred then a 2018 benefit statement is now available via Member Self-Service.

The rate of inflation measured by CPI was 3% which is based on the increase on the Consumer Prices Index over the 12 months to September 2017.  In the majority of cases, members whose last day of membership is after the 24 April 2017 are not entitled to the full 3% increase on the part of their deferred benefits that relate to membership built up before 1 April 2014.

The statement will show the current value of your deferred benefits and the documents below will also help with any questions you may have regarding your statement.
