Defined Contribution

DC Landing Page  (1)Welcome to the dedicated employer webpage, which is designed to help you understand our Defined Contribution (DC) pension schemes and what your responsibilities our in relation to them.

The Civil Service pension scheme’s Defined Contribution arrangements currently consist of three different schemes:

  • A statutory Additional Voluntary Contribution (AVC) scheme, run by Scottish Widows, Standard Life and Equitable Life. 
  • The Partnership pension alternative to the main Defined Benefit pension scheme, run by Scottish Widows, Standard Life and Prudential.  This utilises the stakeholder pension plan option.
  • The stand-alone Stakeholder arrangement, run by Standard Life

Legal & General (L&G) will be our new provider from 1 September 2018 and all new members of the AVC and Partnership pensions will join L&G. The stand-alone stakeholder scheme will close to new members by 1 September 2018.
