Claim your pension

If you are planning retirement, visit the Planning retirement page to see your options and find out how the process works.

You can use the Retirement Modeller to get an estimate of how much your pension will be worth when you retire. You will need the figures from your Benefit Statement to use the Modeller.

If you want to claim your pension, please complete the Change of Details and Retirement Form – Deferred Members and return it to us at least 4 months before your planned retirement date.
