Scheme Guides

This page provides links to each of the civil service pension schemes.

If you don’t know which pension scheme you are in, you can find out by either:

checking your most recent Annual Benefit Statement, or asking your pensions administrator. 

If you don’t know who your administrator is, you can look up their contact details under helplines.

Please note that index linking for Civil Service pensions will be according to the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) from 1st April 2011, instead of the Retail Price Index (RPI)
