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.
