Save the date and/or book your place.




Since 2017, we have held Regional Employer Forums (REFs) face-to-face at least twice a year. REFs have proved to be a valuable opportunity for employers to meet, network and take part in meaningful discussions about the administration of the Civil Service pension scheme.

If you missed last year’s REFs you can catch up here.

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 we were unable to deliver REFs as face-to-face events in 2020 and 2021. However, we’re pleased to inform you that this year’s REFs will be held face-to-face once again.

Dates and locations

The first REF events of 2022 will be held in May.

Wednesday, 18 May

Thursday, 26 May

Registration for these events is now open. Spaces are limited, so please visit the REFs page to reserve your place now. Registration will close on Friday, 29th April.

Once registered, you’ll receive an automatic email confirming your place. We’ll email you with more details about the events in the coming weeks.

At each event the Scheme Manager and Scheme Administrator will be  providing updates on the following:

  • On Your Radar
  • 2015 Remedy 
  • Future Services
  • Communications & Engagement

Plus, we’ll be holding a Q&A session and hosting two breakout sessions, where we’ll be doing a deeper dive on some key topics.

We hope that you’ll join us in welcoming back face-to-face REFs, and we look forward to seeing you there. If you have any questions about the REFs, please email us at
