Pension Power Member Engagement session

Knowledge is power and when you understand your pension, you can make better and more informed choices.



How long does it last?

One hour

Who's it for?

The Pension Power course is designed for existing Civil Service Pension Scheme members and anyone eligible to join the scheme.

What's it about?

These sessions have been funded by the Cabinet Office and will give you a high-level overview of the various pension schemes and benefits provided.

The sessions are delivered either as a webinar or face-to-face at your place of work, depending on demand. For 30 delegates, the course can be delivered face-to-face at your place of work, and for fewer than 30 delegates – or when a face-to-face session is not convenient – a webinar can be provided, accommodating up to 40 delegates.

What will I learn about?

  • Are you pension savvy?
  • The benefits of the Civil Service Pension Scheme
  • How we calculate your pension  
  • Topping up your pension
  • Retirement options
  • What scheme you’re in
  • How your annual pension is calculated
  • How you can make your pension bigger

  • You’ll understand how your annual pension and lump sum will be calculated
  • Be aware of the various retirement options
