Your Deferred Pension Statement is an important record of your LGPS membership. It provides an annual summary of the preserved benefits you hold with us.

Your statement shows:

  • the value of your pension in April of the current year
  • the value of your automatic lump sum for pension benefits built up before 1 April 2008
  • the date at which you can take your pension unreduced
  • the value of any annual survivor (partner/spouse’s) pension
  • the annual pensions increase applied in line with the Consumer Price Index (CPI)
  • whether we hold an Expression of Wish nomination for your death grant

We have produced guidance notes and frequently asked questions to help you better understand your Annual Deferred Pension Statement.

Receiving your Annual Deferred Pension Statement

Every summer we provide you with an Annual Deferred Pension Statement for each LGPS pension you hold with us. We send it either by post or make it available to you online.

If you are registered to my pension online, you will receive an email notification that your statement is available and instruction of how to download it from your account.

Members who are not registered to my pension online will receive their statement in the post. 

By registering to my pension online you can:

  • access and download your statements since 2021 
  • receive your statement by email
  • update your address and expression of wish nomination

Checking your statement 

To ensure we keep you informed about changes to your pension benefits it is important that you check your annual statement each year. You should tell us of any errors or changes to your personal circumstances, such as your name, address, email address, partnership status or expression of wish nomination.
