Pensioner members

If you are in receipt of a monthly pension from the Cornwall Pension Fund, our pensioner pages may provide some help.

To find out how your pension was calculated please view how is my pension calculated?

All UK residents can claim their pension online using the State Pension Online service. It only takes 20 minutes to complete and is available 24/7. It's a secure and easy to use service with online help provided along the way plus online claims can be completed in multiple sittings. If you haven't got everything you need to hand, save your online claim and return to it within 30 days. You can also save and print a copy for your own records.

You can use the online service to make a new State Pension claim.

The website also contains information about qualifying for a state pension and how to get an estimate.

If you are already receiving a state pension, this is separate to the Cornwall Pension Fund.

Please see the Department for Work and Pensions website for information on your state pension or call 0845 606 0265 (find out about call charges). 

It is important that all members complete an expression of wish for lump sum death benefits form and ensure this is updated if personal circumstances change.  You may wish to view lump sum death benefits for more information.

The nomination of cohabiting partner for survivors pension form is only applicable to certain members, please read the guidance on the form for further information.

Any completed forms should be returned to the Cornwall Pension Fund, using the contact details displayed on this page.
