I’m thinking of retiring

When can I take my pension?

You can take your pension from age 55 and in most cases will be reduced to reflect early payment.

What will I receive?

When you retire you will receive:

  • a pension for life; and
  • a one off tax free lump sum

Both of these are based on your service and salary
