What do I need to do to retire?

If you are thinking about retiring you should contact BlackRock in the first instance. Your details will be passed on to Hargreaves Lansdown, a specialist company appointed by the Trustee.  Hargreaves Lansdown will contact you automatically to talk you through your options and guide you through the process.

Once you know what you wish to do and when, you should write to your line manager (either by letter or email) to tell them you want to retire, and the date you wish to leave.

If you have any queries please contact the Scheme Administrator BlackRock in the first instance. BlackRock will deal with your query if possible or ensure that someone within United Utilities does so.
