State Pension Age Review

In July 2017 the Government announced plans to bring forward the rise in the State Pension Age to 68. Read more in the DWP fact sheet on the State Pension Age review.

New late retirement factors

On 4 January 2017 the Department for Communities and Local Government introduced new factors to be used in the calculation of late retirements. These are lower than the previous set of factors that were used when members retired later than their normal scheme retirement date.  The pension calculator on our online pensions service is now using the new factors for both the annual pension and lump sum.
