August 2018 - Your Annual Benefit Statement is on its way

If you are paying into the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS), you will receive an Annual Benefit Statement (ABS) from the Cornwall Pension Fund during August 2018.

It will show the pension you have built up to 31 March 2018 as well as a future projection of your benefits if you remain paying into the scheme to your Normal Pension Age (NPA). This is the age you would retire and take your benefits without any reduction to your pension.

Along with the ABS, we have enclosed an active member newsletter and a preserved member newsletter as applicable, based on your membership status within the Fund.

The statements will be posted out to you in August 2018.
