My missus has qualified for a Local Government pension and has been sent a form as a result of her declaring her service pension to the Local Authority. The form asks a couple of questions: 1. What percentage of the Standard Lifetime Allowance (at the time the benefit was taken) that the total benefit taken represents. 2. If cash is protected under Primary Protection: a. The amount of tax-free cash. b. Date benefit was taken (date of retirement from scheme). Not being into finance-speak, could anyone please explain in simple terms what this all means. Thanks.
