The benefits of your Civil Service pension
It’s easy to think of your pension as something
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.
