Any decision you make regarding your Pension is one of the most important decisions you will ever make and it should be an informed decision, preferably, with the help of an independent financial advisor.
To help you with this, we have provided a facility that allows you to obtain an estimate of your retirement benefits any time you like, as many times as you like, directly from your computer, smart phone or tablet, using our Member Self Service website, allowing you to check your benefits immediately, at the touch of a button, from any location. No e-mails; no post; just information direct to your screen, providing you with a quick, convenient and secure way to check your retirement benefits.
Registration is easy, simply click the link below and follow the instructions to request an Activation Key. Once received, you will be able to complete your registration and will have direct access to your pension records.
Register for Member Self Service here.
If you require a paper copy of your benefit estimate, please complete a Member Estimate Request form, available on our Forms and Resources page and return this to us using the details on the Contact Us page.
Please note that paper estimates are limited to one request per year and will only be provided where the relevant date for the estimate is within 12 months of the request. You can include two separate estimate dates on each request.
Member Self Service is not just a facility for obtaining an estimate of your benefits. It is also a useful tool that allows you to securely and remotely access your own records, enabling you to:
- view and update your own personal information and contact details,
- check your membership and salary history
- perform pension projection calculations based on a number of scenarios
- notify the Pensions Service of any amendments required,
- view how much of your pension growth annual tax allowance you have used, and
- contact us directly
NB: From 2016 onwards, Member Self Service will be the default method for receiving your Annual Benefit Statement. It is, therefore, highly recommended that you take the opportunity to sign up now and familiarise yourself with the website.
