Active Members' Annual Benefit Statements 2017

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version
Each year, Merseyside Pension Fund meets the statutory requirement to produce a Benefit Statement for those active members of the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) as at 31 March of that year.
Registered Users of the Fund’s secure password-protected online website, 'MyPension', who were active members of the LGPS as at 31 March 2017, can now view their 2017 Active Members' Annual Benefit Statement online.
The figures quoted on the 2017 Annual Benefit Statement provide an illustration for members and are not legally binding on the Fund. The total amount of benefits which a member would receive on retirement may be different. Members should request a Benefit Estimate from their employer before making any decision to retire.
The questions and answers at the bottom of the page aim to help you access your 2017 Annual Statement in MyPension and understand the information contained within it.
While the Fund is required to produce Active Members’ Annual Benefit Statements by Thursday 31 August 2017, unfortunately, not all active members who may be expecting a 2017 Annual Statement, will be able to view one by that date. For more information, please click here.
