Pension Payments Following Suspension

When you stop working in employment which caused your pension to be suspended, your pension will start again no later than the third month after the last month for which your benefit was suspended, if you have provided the required notice outlined above. You will receive a benefit which is equal to the benefit you were receiving before the suspension plus the monthly benefit based on Pension Credit you earned when you returned to work.

The Trustees will recover the amount of any pension payments which you received after you returned to work. This recovery will be done by withholding future pension payments until the full amount is recovered. If you have reached Normal Retirement Age, the amount withheld will be limited to 100% of the first payment after your pension starts and 25% of subsequent payments. The Trustees can also recover over-payments from you by any other lawful means.
