The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new set of European Union regulations due to come into force on 25 May 2018. It will change how organisations process and handle data, with the key aim of giving greater protection and rights to individuals.
The Avon Pension Fund already has procedures in place which comply with similar data protection principles under the Data Protection Act 1998. The new regulations will reinforce these existing requirements, and members are unlikely to notice a change in the service they receive from the Avon Pension Fund.
Due to essential maintenance work my pension online will be unavailable from 8am on Monday 12 March until 5pm of Monday 12 March. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
A series of free pre-retirement workshops is available to assist members of the pension scheme when they begin to think about planning for retirement.
The workshops are aimed at anyone considering leaving employment on normal, early or ill health retirement, or taking flexible retirement within the next 18 months or so. Partners are encouraged and welcome to attend.
The Summer issue of Avon Pension News is now available to download from the website. Copies are posted to members who pay into the Fund during August accompanying the Annual Pension Statement.
If you are paying into the local government pension scheme (LGPS) you will receive an Annual Pension Benefit Statement from the Avon Pension Fund during August.
It shows the pension you have built up to 31 March 2017 as well as a future projection of your benefits if you remain paying into the scheme to your Normal Pension Age (NPA). This is the age you would retire and take your benefits without any reduction to your pension.
The statements will be posted out to you from mid to late August.
