Check your annual statement
This news article was published on 09 Sep 2022
Your pension fund must provide you with an annual statement by 31 August every year if you are an active or deferred member.
Your pension fund will most likely provide your statement by making it available on their online pension portal. If you have not been notified that your statement is available to view, or you have not received a paper statement, you should contact your pension fund to find out why.
If you are paying into the LGPS, your statement provides an estimate of the pension benefits you have built up in the LGPS at 31 March in the current year. It may also provide a projection of the pension that you could have if you continue to work until your normal pension age.
If you are a deferred member, your statement tells you the current value of your pension taking into account cost of living adjustments.
It is important to check the information on your statement is correct. This may include the pay used to calculate your pension, your contact and partnership information.
