Keeping your options open
Any time you want to check on your LPPA pension, you can view your latest annual benefit statement in just a few clicks through your online account. As well as showing the current value of your pension and any increases, it estimates your projected benefits at ‘Normal Pension Age’(NPA), which is always an interesting read.
If you were hoping to pick up your pension a little earlier, it’s easy to get projections for other dates too. Anything relating to redundancy, flexible retirement or ill health will always need to be requested via your employer. But if you’re just trying to work out how soon you can retire, there’s a simple option.
If you are a deferred member, the earliest you can access your pension is from age 55, this will be subject to reductions because this is before the normal pension age in the scheme. You may apply to receive payment of your deferred benefits early on the grounds of ill health. You should make this request in writing to LPPA, such requests will be considered by your previous employer and a medical professional.
How you can retire
This is by far the quickest way to get the information you need. It only takes a few minutes to register and once you’re up and running, you can get as many estimates as you like. Even if planning your retirement is no more than wishful thinking, there’s no harm in having a little fun.
