In 2015, the Government made changes to public service pensions. Some rules were implemented that defined if and when members would move into the new alpha pension scheme. This treatment of members was later found by the Court of Appeal to be discriminatory based on age.
From 1 April 2022, all current members will be moved into alpha. After October 2023, public service workers within scope of the 2015 Remedy, will be offered a choice at retirement as to which benefits they would prefer to receive for any service during the period April 2015 to April 2022.
