What do I have to do?
Consider all your options carefully. We recommend you see an independent financial adviser to help you decide what's best for you.
We will send you a retirement pack once we are advised by you that you wish to draw your NAPS pension or on ceasing employment with British Airways. This will contain details of your pension and retirement options (such as tax-free cash) and also a guaranteed cash equivalent transfer value (CETV).
Your pack will include pension election and payment instruction forms, which you should complete and return to us as soon as possible. We will let you know that we have received your completed forms by email or by post.

You cannot give or 'assign' your benefits to anyone else. This includes, for example, trying to use your benefits as security for a loan. If you attempt to assign any part of your benefits, you will lose your rights under NAPS.
