Your request was received on 14 August 2023 and I am dealing with it under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
A copy of the information is attached. Please read the below notes to ensure correct understanding of the data.
• Only members with a payable date in the 2022/23 Tax Year (06/04/2022 – 05/04/2023) are included. Payable date does not necessarily relate to the year the pension was put into payment, but the year the benefits were payable from.
• Age has been calculated as at the payable date.
• The pension value is based on the figure before tax, but after any commutation. It may not be the amount the member is receiving today when factoring in Pensions Increase (PI), or cessation of payments. Not all members receive a pension; these have been reflected as £0.00 annual pension.
