How we keep in touch

Pensioner Newsletter - Gwent Grapevine

This is the newsletter we issue every year in December to keep you up to date with what is happening with the Greater Gwent (Torfaen) Pension Fund and in the pensions world in general.


P60 End of Year Certificates

A P60 is a certificate showing the pension paid and the tax deducted during the previous tax year. We will send you a P60 in May each year.  You can also view and print off your P60 details through your My Pension Online account.



We send a payslip to you at least three times a year in March, April and May. You can also view your payslips online through your My Pension Online account


Pension Increases

Your pension is increased every April in line with the cost of living (Consumer Price Index) every April.  We will always tell you about any increases to be applied to your pension in the Gwent Grapevine newsletter.

Don't forget to keep in touch with us and let us know if you:

  • change address or email address
