We have looked back over several years to determine the pension in payment at the times stated in your request. This does not necessarily mean those pensions are still being paid in the present day. For example, some members in receipt of benefits in 2015 will have since died.
To provide only those pensions where the member is ‘currently receiving benefits’ (i.e. in the present day) then we would not be able to provide data for 2015, 2018, 2020, 2022 and 2023.
