How pensions were calculated prior to April 2016

The calculation of your pension changed in April 2016. If you were an active member at this time, then your pension accrued up to April 2016 was converted to your Past Service Percentage. Please click here to see how your pension is calculated. 

However, if you left the Scheme prior to this date, then your pension at your date of leaving would have been calculated as follows:

Pensionable Service (in years and months) x Final Pensionable Earnings x 1/60

This calculation is subject to a maximum of 2/3rds of your Pensionable Earnings. 

Reduced accrual members who left before April 2016 accrued pension at a rate of 75% of the formula set out above in respect of service during which they were a reduced accrual member.
