    1) Annual pension benefit statement has been received every year up to 1st June each year.This year I have not received one as yet.Are they obliged to send one to me if I request it?

    2)If your made redundant,and your in a DB company pension,does the pension increase each year as a minimum increase?

    Answer 1 - For DB schemes you generally don't get annual statements although there may be exceptions & you could ask for 1 if you wanted.
    Answer 2 - If you leave employment there is an obligation to increase your DB by inflation as a minimum but some may increase by more depending on scheme rules.

    You say active member, so you are entitled to a statement.

    Either an Annual Benefit Statement or a statement of your Pension value , compared to a year ago, so that you can assess whether your have exceeded your annual allowance and need to inform HMRC (Her Majesties Rhubarb and Custard)

  • You're right, of course. How silly of me. After all, all my work is solely focused on my own personal circumstance?

  • RT @ARJMOR: @MartinSLewis It may well be kind of random, but the algorithm used has a bias to the unpopular seats.

  • It seems what Ryanair is saying is "don't pay and we leave you the seats we don't think people want and they're in the middle."
