Leaving benefits

If you leave Cadent before retirement, you will become a deferred member of the Scheme and your pension will become deferred. Your deferred pension will be calculated on the date you leave and increased in line with the Retail Prices Index (RPI) each year. This helps it keep up with inflation between your leaving date and your Normal Retirement Date.
