Receiving My Benefits

Receiving my benefits

This section of the website is designed to assist members who are already in receipt of or are about to receive a pension. 

It sets out in simple terms the arrangements for the payment of your pension benefits and important information relating to your retirement.

What is a pensioner?

This will include:

  • A member who has retired from active pensionable employment and is entitled to receive a pension from their date of retirement.
  • A preserved member who left pensionable employment before their normal retirement date but who now has reached pensionable age and is eligible to receive a pension.
  • A widow or widower who receives a pension on the death of a member of the scheme.
  • A child who receives a pension on the death of a member of the scheme or a nominated person who receives a pension on behalf of the child (a parent or guardian).
