Unclaimed refund and deferred benefit checker

If you worked for an employer that contributed to the South Yorkshire Pension Fund and you were a member of the Local Government Pension Scheme you may have an entitlement to a deferred benefit payable from your normal retirement age or if you only paid into the scheme for a short period of time, a refund of contributions.

By entering your National Insurance Number below we will search our database and advise you if you have either a deferred benefit, an unclaimed refund or no benefit entitlement within the fund. If we do match a record to your details we will also confirm if the match shows we have lost contact with you.

You can expect one of the following outcomes,  

  1. An unclaimed refund is detected
    In these cases you will then be asked to submit some more information so that we can verify it is you. After further security checks we will contact you for your bank details to enable us to make payment of your unclaimed refund.
