What happens to my previous pension now I'm in alpha?

The alpha scheme guide is the place to go for information about your pension.

Towards the end of section 1A of the scheme guide – ‘An overview of alpha’, you will find ‘An overview of alpha and the Principal Civil Service Pension Scheme (PCSPS)’ where you can find information about how your classic, classic plus, premium or nuvos pension is affected once you have moved into alpha.

You will find information like this in most sections of the guide, highlighting whether your benefits in previous schemes are treated differently now you’re in alpha. It is also a good place to start if you need more detailed information about how the features of alpha work alongside the features of the scheme you moved from.

Some members will not have moved into alpha yet, and some may not move at all. Find out more about how the introduction of alpha affects you.
