Your deferred benefit consists of an annual pension, that is payable for life, with an option on retirement to exchange part of your pension for a one off tax-free lump sum.
If you joined the LGPS prior to 2008, you would have also accrued an automatic tax-free lump sum. You can take up to 25% of the capital value of your pension tax free.
Your pension benefits also includes life cover and financial protection for your family. Go to the What if I die as a member? section for further details.
