September 2022 – Letter from the seven UK Staff Associations to the Home Office

PFEW and the six other UK staff associations wrote collectively to the Home Office to express our shared concerns around a number of pension related subjects. The issues raised include implementation of the second phase of the remedy to the unlawful age discrimination identified in the McCloud/Sargeant judgment, the pensions trap, and the overall relationship that Home Office officials have with those who represent serving officers across the country. The letter can be accessed here.


March 2022 - Public Service Pensions and Judicial Offices Act 2022 (PSP&JO Bill)

The government introduced the Public Services Pensions and Judicial Offices Bill (PSP&JOB) to legislate how they will remove the discrimination identified by the courts in the way that the 2015 pension reforms were introduced. The guidance can be accessed here.


March 2022 – Pension remedy FAQs

Click here to find a comprehensive FAQ document regarding the pension remedy. This document is designed to answer FAQs about the Government’s intended remedy to the unlawful discrimination caused by the transitional protections under the Police Pension Scheme 2015 (the 2015 CARE Scheme) following the McCloud/Sargeant Court of Appeal decision.

A remedy calculator (My Own Pension - McCloud) is now available for members or former members of the Police Pension Scheme 1987 to use. Action is being undertaken to look to include Police Pension Scheme 2006 members and further communications will be issued to advise once this is available.

PFEW is aware the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) published a circular on 25 March regarding members who opted out and are intending to seek re-admission into the pension scheme (for the Remedy Period) through the ‘contingent decisions’ route. The Home Office has not published updated guidance or information on this matter and as such, PFEW maintains the position as stated in 3.12 of the remedy FAQ document.
