As a member of the pensions board for West Yorkshire Fire Service I have just been on a training course on pensions with West Yorkshire Pensions Fund who administer our pensions scheme. These are the people who calculate your pensions estimates. As with all public sector workers their workload has increased while their staffing has not. Please be polite and courteous if you have to contact and talk with them. They have encountered many aggressive angry scheme members. They did not cut your pension and are doing their best to help you.
