5.5.6 As a borrowing employer you must tell an inward secondee to ask their lending employer for information about how their secondment affects their pension. An inward secondee may not be able to join the CSP arrangements. This will have been decided when agreeing the secondment terms. You should ask the Scheme Administrator about the pension implications before offering the secondment and entering into any agreement with the lending employer.

Normally when the inward secondee stays in their lending employers’ pension scheme, they will continue to have injury benefit cover from them. You must ask the lending employer if they will continue injury benefit cover before the secondment begins. If there is no injury benefit cover, you must decide whether or not to offer Civil Service Injury Benefit Scheme coverage during the secondment.
