I've applied for retirement, giving the date of my birthday in April 2019 as my retirement date. I know that I will be back paid so will receive the first payment in May. My question, to those of you have already retired, is when did you receive exact details of what your pension would be? Can I expect to hear near my birthday or is it more likely to be before the first payment in May? I cannot find the answer to this on the TP website.
