The Greater Gwent Pension Fund likes to keep our Scheme Employer up to date with the latest news and support that is available to help 

We support our employer by offering:-

  • Quarterly Employer Newsletters
  • Email Bulletins - for legislation changes and upcoming LGA training events

My Pension Online

The Fund offers members the ability to view their pension details online through our My Pension Online Service.  Registration is straightforward and if we already hold the members' email address on their pension record they can get same day access to their details. 

 

Members can update their personal details, sending information securely to the Fund through their account, view their annual benefit statements and use the pension projector to run their own pension estimates (between age 55 and 75).

 

The Pension Fund wants to make sure as many of our members are taking advantage of the My Pension Online service and to do this we need you our scheme employers to help advertise the service on a regular basis.  You can do this by downloading our branded advertising and putting it on your staff intranets, newsletters, new employer information and even pay slips if possible.
