You can look forward to a pension that is reviewed every year, to keep it in line with the cost of living, for the rest of your life.

There is scope to retire and take your benefits from as young as age 55, right up to your Normal Pension Age and even beyond. In cases of ill health, there is no MINIMUM age limit at all.

To be entitled to benefits you must have at least two years' membership or have transferred other pension rights into the Scheme.

You can even have a gradual move into retirement - find out more about flexible retirement.
