Your Annual Pension Statement 2015 is on its way

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 2015 as well as a future projection of your benefits to your Normal Pension Age (NPA). This is the age you would retire and take your benefits without any reduction to your pension.
