No notifications in notification bar on lock screen after Lollipop upgrade

Before my G3 was "upgraded" to 5.01, I could double tap the screen, the lock screen would come up, and at the top of the screen in the notification bar, there would be icons for new SMS, emails and calendar events, if there were any new ones.

After the 5.01 "upgrade", that is no longer the case.  I have to actually unlock the screen, and then the icons in the notification bar are visible.

I've heard and read that the 5.01 upgrade now lets you have notifications directly on the lock screen.  That is NOT what I am referring to.  This is the actual notification bar icons, which worked before the "upgrade", but now do not.

The first image below show where the notifications for SMS, emails, calendar events, etc used to be shown.  The second image shows the icons are visible after unlocking the phone.

So, does anyone know how to make the notifications show up in the notification bar while the lock screen is displayed?

All the notifications for the G2 and G3 have been under the clock that I have seen and no indicators in the bar.

I have the G4 and I'm in the same situation... I want to be able to see my notifications at a glance without unlocking my screen.

Recently i started using a security pin and i couldn't help but notice the difference after the Lollipop (5.0.1) update. Now when i get a notification(s). I tap the notification then i'm reminded to type in my pin. After which i'm taken straight to the notification no matter where that notification came from. I love it.

And just to make sure, i went to my phones "sound & notification". I don't want to mess up a good thing.
