When will the changes to public sector pensions take place

The government will be introducing new legislation and intends for processes to be in place by 1 October 2023 to support members to make a choice once they retire, or earlier if schemes are able to do so.

Helping members who are affected to make their choice of pension scheme benefits with confidence is our priority, and we’re putting support in place to help you to do this.

Once this is complete, we’ll share more information with you on what’s next and how you can access information on your alternative benefits for the remedy period ahead of your retirement.

For now, all our processes will remain the same and there is nothing you need to do. We’ll contact all affected members directly when you need to take action.

Finding more information

If you have any questions, you’ll find more information on our knowledge base. We update this regularly.
