Campaigning on behalf of pensioners.

We are here to make sure you get the best from your retirement. We have been campaigning on behalf of pensioners in the UK for over 60 years. We also provide a whole host of member services and benefits designed to meet the needs of pensioners, from special deals on travel insurance to a computer helpline.

A dynamic membership
With over 50,000 members and local groups throughout England and Wales and separate branches in Malta, Northern Ireland and Scotland we are a powerful voice for pensioners. Members directly feed into our policy agenda through our annual general meeting.

An independent voice
We are an independent, non-party political organisation with an elected Executive Council. Our income comes from members’ subscriptions and we receive no financial help from outside bodies. This leaves us free to pursue the policies that are best for our members.

Working together for pensioners
We are affiliated to the National Pensioners’ Convention, the Public Service Pensioners’ Council, Age UK, and AGE (the European Older People’s Platform). We work together to achieve a better deal for older people.

Recognition that counts
We are the only organisation recognised by the Government as being mandated to speak on behalf of civil service pensioners. With direct access to the Cabinet Office, we make sure that your voice is heard.
