This estimator is designed to give you a rough indication of the benefits you might receive if you elect to retire before your Normal Pension Age. It asks you for:
- the date to which you want your pension calculated
- which scheme you’re in
- the reckonable service you'll have earned up to the date you’re thinking of retiring
- your current pensionable earnings.
Using this information the estimator can work out how much your reduced pension might be if it were taken before your normal pension age. For classic members it will also show you the lump sum that might be available, but please note that this estimator does not take account of any restrictions that may apply. Refer to the notes attached to the Early Retirement estimator for further details of these restrictions.
