You do not need to take any action. If you qualify for protection, the underpin will apply to you automatically. You do not need to make a legal claim.

Your pension fund may need information from you to work out whether you are protected. This is more likely if you were a member of another public service pension scheme before 1 April 2012 and you did not transfer that pension to the LGPS. It is important that you read any letters from your pension fund carefully and give them the information that they ask for.
