THE NEW CIVIL SERVICE PENSION SCHEME: ALPHA
Next April, most civil servants will move into a new pension scheme called Alpha. It’s important that you understand what the new pension scheme means for you.
A new Civil Service Pension scheme website has been introduced, which includes the latest information about the 2015 changes.
The new website makes it quick and easy for you to find important information that is relevant to you. You should visit the new website to find out more about the pension changes.
While this website offers generic information regarding the new “Alpha” scheme as it will be introduced in April 2015 to the civil service in general, it is important to remind you that the DPF are still in on-going negotiations with the department and cabinet office regarding the Normal Pension Age for MDP officers under the new scheme.
There are meetings arranged with the department in the near future to discuss these issues and further updates will be provided in due course.
