The calculator is intended for use by the general public. If you like, it is an alternative to the calculator available at:

My reason for alerting list members to the site’s existence was principally to get feedback on it (and many thanks to those who have commented!).

However, for the majority the Pension Service phone line is probably the best way of finding their entitlement, assuming they can get through that is.
