Each year you build up a pension at a rate of 1/49th of your pensionable pay. 

If you have been on reduced pay due to sickness or relevant child related leave, your pension is based on the pay you would have received.

The amount of pension you build up is added to your Pension Account at the end of each scheme year.

For any period you were in the 50/50 section the pension you build up is halved.

The amount of pension in your Pension Account at the end of each scheme year is adjusted in line with the cost of living - as currently measured by the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) - to ensure it keeps its value.

Your employer passes details of your pensionable pay to us at the end of each scheme year. 

You should check the amount in your Pension Account by using your annual update. This will also show the value of any pre 2015 benefits you have built up.
