police care calculator now live3

The Police Pension Calculator has now launched to provide you with an illustration of your benefits at a retirement date selected by you. The calculator can be used by everyone, including 1987/2006 members. This calculator is for guidance purposes only and is not a guarantee of future benefits. It is not intended to provide you with financial advice. If you require financial advice, you should contact an independent financial adviser. 

We are pleased to confirm that the calculator has now been updated with the up to date revised PPS 1987 lump sum factors. Further enhancements to take into account the recent pay award are being looked at by the Government Actuary's Department, once these have been completed and tested we will update the website.

What the calculator does provide:

  • The calculator offers an illustration of benefits, presented in todays' money terms, that may become payable at a retirement date selected by you.
  • It shows benefits payable for each scheme you have been a member of and also includes an estimate of the maximum lump sum that could be payable.
  • The calculator also makes available a printable copy of the outputs.

What the Calculator does not provide:

  • About any optional benefits such as additional pension and additional voluntary contributions.
  • The entitlements your spouse or partner may receive.
  • How your pension is calculated.
  • The effect of pensions tax charges on your benefits.
