Your Civil Service pension: A passport to your passions

After your salary, your pension is one of your biggest employment benefits.

It provides you with financial security and options when you retire, as well as benefits for your family and loved ones.

2015 Remedy (McCloud)

In 2015 the government introduced reforms to public service pensions. Most public sector workers were moved into a new pension scheme called ‘alpha.’

In 2018, the Court of Appeal found that some of the rules put in place back in 2015 to protect older workers by allowing them to remain in their original scheme, were discriminatory.

As a result, steps are being taken to remedy those 2015 reforms. This known as the 2015 Remedy.
