Your Pension Statement is an important record of your LGPS membership. It provides an annual summary of your pension account and the benefits you have built with us. 

Your statement shows at the 31 March:

  • your employment details
  • your pensionable pay used to calculate your pension
  • the value of your pension account
  • the value of your automatic lump sum for pension benefits built up before 1 April 2008
  • the value of any annual survivor (partner/spouse’s) pension
  • whether we hold an Expression of Wish nomination for your death grant
  • how your pension benefits are calculated and increased since your previous statement
  • the annual pensions increase applied in line with the Consumer Price Index (CPI)
  • the date at which you can take your pension unreduced
  • the projected value of your pension, any automatic lump sum and annual survivor (partner/spouse’s) pension, if you remained in the scheme until your normal pension age (NPA)

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

Receiving your Annual Pension Statement

Every summer we provide you with an Annual 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 31 August each year.

By registering to my pension online you can:

  • access and download your statements since 2022 
  • 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. 

The information we use to update your Pension Account and produce your statement comes from your employer.  During each scheme year (which runs from 1 April to 31 March), they will pass changes to your employment and details of your pensionable pay to us. 

If you have any issues with your employment or pay details on your statement, please contact your employer.
