Hard Copy Statement
If you have made a written election to receive a hard copy of your statement, the booklet under the link at the foot of the page will provide you with the necessary notes of guidance to explain the various sections of the statement. It has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Occupational and Personal Pension Schemes (Disclosure of Information) Regulations 2013 and the relevant Scheme regulations. However, these notes cannot cover every personal circumstance and in the event of any dispute over your statement, the appropriate legislation will prevail. They do NOT confer any contractual or statutory rights and are provided for information purposes only. Please refer to these notes whilst carefully reading your statement.

Topping up your Benefits
If appropriate, you should have already received a separate statement in respect of your Additional Voluntary Contribution (AVC) arrangement directly from your respective in-house provider, either Prudential, Standard Life or Equitable Life. If this is not the case, please contact us.
