The benefits of your Civil Service pension

It’s easy to think of your pension as something Brush Up On Your Benefits
you’ll claim in many years time. But it’s worth remembering the benefits of a Civil Service Pension and the options that you have when it comes to planning your financial future.

Things to consider:

  • Review your Annual Benefit Statement, which gives you details of your Civil Service Pension benefits including your pension built up (to date), your Death Benefit Nominee(s), and your service history.     
  • Options on boosting your benefits through Added Pension and/or Additional Voluntary Contributions (AVCs).   
  • Options on leaving a lump sum payment should you pass away whilst in service (or up to five years after retirement) through a Death Benefit Nomination.
  • Life assurance cover.
