Pensioners News 2020
Merseyside Pension Fund will be closed from 5pm on Wednesday 23 December 2020 until 9am on Monday 4 January 2021.
Merseyside Pension Fund’s 2019/2020 Report & Accounts remains in a draft status whilst we await the approval of the financial statement at Wirral Council's Audit & Risk Management Committee (ARMC) and the issue of the audit opinion.
Just a reminder, that LGPS pensions are paid monthly, no later than the 10th of each month.
MyPension is our secure online tool which allows Active, Deferred and Pensioner members to view important pension information. After yesterday's system upgrade, users will notice a fresh new-look, fully responsive when used on mobile devices.
In the week commencing Monday 11 May 2020, the Fund will post a P60 End of Tax Year Certificate to everyone who received a pension from us in the 2019/2020 tax year which ended on 5 April 2020.
There has been a lot of disturbing news lately about the fall in stock markets and the potential resultant impact on defined contribution pensions.
The Fund has published its annual newsletter for LGPS pensioners, ‘The Honeypot’. This issue's leading article describes the 1.7% increase to local government pensions from April 2020.
A printed copy of this newsletter, will be posted to pensioners' home addresses shortly.
Merseyside Pension Fund will no longer post a payslip to pensioners' home addresses each April. Like all public sector organisations, the Fund must streamline its costs to ensure that services to members are cost-effective.
