It was useful to learn about the different types of retirement, being made aware of the online NILGOSC calculators and being reminded to complete my Expression of Wish form.

Pension information sessions

NILGOSC provides general information sessions on the Scheme for its members.  Up until recently these were run at employer locations on particular topics e.g. Scheme benefits, retiring from the Scheme.  However, due to the current pandemic we are now offering remote information sessions lasting one hour on MS Teams.  The information sessions that we are currently running include:

  • Welcome to the Scheme for members who joined in the last 12 months
  • Approaching retirement
  • Scheme benefits including boosting your pension
  • Redundancy benefits

Please note that to enjoy full functionality it is recommended that you download MS Teams on the device you intend to use to watch the seminar, however this is not essential and you can choose to attend via the web option.
