Civil Service Compensation Scheme for employers

On these pages you’ll find information that tells you what you, as an employer, need to know about Civil Service Compensation Scheme (CSCS), and your responsibilities in delivering it to your staff.

On 9 November 2016 a new Civil Service Compensation Scheme was launched. Full details of the new scheme can be found by clicking on the CSC Scheme 2016 button below.

Please note: You will need to arrange an early commissioning meeting or telekit between the scheme administrator and your shared services or payroll provider a minimum of three months prior to gaining approval of an exit scheme. This will enable the estimated number of exits and dates to be agreed and provisionally booked in advance.

To contact the scheme administrator’s dedicated Exits team, please use the following email: The team will be able to assist with the forecasting and provisional booking of schemes as well as answering any queries you may have about the CSCS.  

In the meantime, a ‘What to expect guide’ which outlines the CSCS process and provides estimated timescales can be used to help you plan your exit scheme. The guide can be downloaded by clicking here.
