7.1.14 Members of classic, classic plus, premium or nuvos cannot build up benefits in the scheme after their 75th birthday. However, they are eligible to join either the partnership or alpha scheme from age 75. Please note: in partnership, members cannot make personal contributions, but their employer does contribute. 

If a member chooses to join either alpha or partnership or not, their employer will update the member’s record to reflect their decision and will deduct the relevant contributions.

The Scheme Administrator (MyCSP) will provide a report on a monthly basis to help you to identify members who are approaching age 75.

You must stop deducting contributions and stop paying ASLCs to the Cabinet Office Civil Superannuation Vote for these members from their 75th birthday.

You are required to inform your payroll department of any member who is approaching age 75 so that their contributions can be stopped at the relevant time.

The Scheme Administrator will notify members of their pension benefits and request information to ensure that they can test members’ unclaimed benefits against their Lifetime Allowance by their 75th birthday. Members can claim their pension immediately before their 75th birthday; however, they are not obliged to do so.

The information above does not apply to members of alpha or partnership, who can continue to build up benefits after age 75.
