Viewing your pension

Your defined benefit pension is based on your time in the DB section of the scheme and your pensionable salary.

This section of the Scheme was closed on 31 August 2013, but you would have received a statement soon after you left (or the DB section closed) confirming the benefits you had built up.

Between your date of leaving and your retirement, your benefits in the DB section will be revalued to help protect them against some of the effects of inflation.

The best way to see what benefits you had built up at the point you left and get illustrations of the possible pension available to you on retirement is by logging in to your online pension account at

If you’ve not accessed your account before, you’ll need to register. The process for this is very simple, you just need your National Insurance number. You can follow the process on the screen, or if you need help this guide provides more details.
