When you retire, you will receive your deferred pension from the Fund which will be paid to you every month for the rest of your life.
The pensions administration team will contact you up to 12 months before the date your pension is due to commence.
Taking your pension early
If you have at least 10 years’ pensionable service, you can take your pension at any time after the age of 55, but it will be reduced for early payment. However, you will not be able to take your pension early if after the reduction, the pension is less than the Guaranteed Minimum Pension (GMP) at GMP age.
