About your Annual Benefit Statement 2017
What is an Annual Benefit Statement?
Your Annual Benefit Statement is a summary of your Civil Service pension benefits up to 31 March 2017.
We produce your Annual Benefit Statement using information provided by your employer.
Your statement includes your current death benefit nominee(s) and how much death benefit they could receive in the event of your death in service.
It contains your personal details and important information about tax rules that could affect your benefits. You should ensure that your employer holds up-to-date personal details for you, for example, your current home address.
Who receives an Annual Benefit Statement?
To receive an Annual Benefit Statement, you must meet the following eligibility criteria:
- You are an active member or an active pensioner member; or
- You were an active member or active pensioner member of either the Principal Civil Service Pension Scheme or alpha on 31 March 2017.
Your employer must also have provided a record of pension contributions (or pensionable earnings for members of alpha or nuvos) for the 2016/17 scheme year.
We will issue all statements (excluding those for secure members) directly to members’ home addresses. This complies with the Disclosure of Information Regulations for Occupational and Personal Pension Schemes, which requires that information is sent to your last known postal address.
