The Department of Finance (DoF) consulted on proposals to fix age related discrimination identified in the transitional arrangements of the 2015 public service pension reforms.   

This applies to all of the main public service pension schemes, including the NITPS. If you were in service on or before 31 March 2012 and still in service on or after 01 April 2015 then the consultation will apply to you.

NEU NI will be responding in relation to the Department of Finance’s further consultation on transitional protection arrangements. (McCloud Remedy)

Department of Education NI have produced a quick guide and FAQs to provide NI Teachers’ Pension Scheme members with further information. Members wishing to feed into the response or who have any queries can contact the NEU Northern Ireland by email
