Pension scheme members who were in a public service pension scheme on or before 31 March 2012 and on 1 April 2015 are eligible. This includes members who left service after 31 March 2012 but returned within 5 years.
This means, members who were transitionally protected when the 2015 scheme reforms were introduced i.e. allowed to remain in their legacy schemes or were not immediately transferred into the 2015 schemes will also be affected.
Who is not impacted by these changes
Members who joined a public service pension scheme on or after 1 April 2012 are not affected by the changes and will continue to build up pension in their current scheme.
