Options at Retirement

As a deferred member, what options do you have at retirement?

  • Tax-free cash
    You may be able to exchange some of your pension for a tax-free lump sum on retirement.
  • Terminating pensions
    If you retire before you reach state pension age, it may be possible to receive a larger pension from the Scheme until state pension age and a smaller one afterwards to bridge the gap until your state pension is paid.
  • Extra spouse's pension
    You can choose to give up some of your pension to provide extra pension for your spouse after your death.

Details of all the above options can be obtained from Pensions as you approach retirement. Please  email: pensions.administration@nsg.com
