Teachers’ pension scheme

Documents about changes to the teachers’ pension scheme which come into effect in April 2015.

Information on the teachers’ pension scheme which is being reformed.

The changes will take effect from 1 April 2015, when teachers’ pensions will be calculated on a career average basis and normal pension age will be linked to state pension age. They will not apply to all members, because transitional protections are in place for those closest to retirement.

Full information can be found on the Teachers’ pensions website.
