Read the alpha transition Employer Guide, which is designed to help you prepare to move affected members into the alpha scheme from 1 April 2022.


The alpha transition Employer Guide covers the steps you need to take in relation to:

  • Identifying members who are in-scope
  • Engaging with third parties
  • Moving members into alpha
  • Payroll cut-off dates
  • Enhanced data validations
  • New Fair Deal employers
  • Added pension
  • Engaging with affected members and promoting awareness

Later this month we will provide you with a self-assessment questionnaire/survey which asks questions regarding readiness. This will help identify any gaps or outstanding actions required.


For any general queries in relation to this communication, please contact the Remedy team

If you have a question about the distribution of EPNs, or would like to receive them in a different format, please contact

You can find electronic copies of the Employer Pension Guide, all current EPNs and forms in the Employer section of the Civil Service Pensions website.

This notice is for employers and should not be issued to scheme members.

Members can find information about their pension by visiting the member's section.
