I will do my very best to describe and direct you to the place which will provide you the information you need to understand your pension.
The Pension Plan provides eligible NFL players* with pension and
disability benefits, and offers survivor protection for their wives and
family. If your first Credited Season is before 1993, you may start your
pension benefit as early as age 45. If your first Credited Season is
1993 or later, you may start your pension benefit at age 55 or later.
The amount of your monthly pension benefit is based on the sum of
benefit credits you have earned for your Credited Seasons, how old you
are when you begin receiving your pension benefit, and the form in which
you choose to receive your pension benefit. The decisions you make
regarding when you receive payment may greatly influence the amount of
money you receive.
