The revised retirement benefit details form (AW171) was a form completed by employers to revise details that had been submitted on a retirement benefit claim form (AW8) or death in service application (AW9 or AW11).

This form is no longer required as this process has now been automated so that any changes submitted via the Change of employment details form SD55E that are likely to affect a members benefits will automatically trigger a revised award work item. Guidance on completing the SD55E via Pensions Online (POL) and a paper version of the form for non POL/ESR users can be found on the Employer hub.
