I left the civil service many years ago, I am in the classic pension, I am a female 62. I am reading that my lump sum or my annual pension will not increase as I am over 60. If I don't start drawing the pension do I lose the years that I don't draw it. I am still working and don't need the money so haven't given it a thought, but, I am wondering if I am losing out thank you

If so, what exactly does it say?
does this have any bearing on me drawing my Civil Service pension?
No - the question was really to establish whether you would have the possibility of improving your forecast through voluntary contributions and if so, whether you might use the arrears of CSP to do it.
However, if your forecast is £179.60 at 5/4/22 and you are still working and paying NI for the current and following year, you'll reach full NSP without voluntary contributions.
