We have created a helpful document, which you can view by following the link below, answering Frequently Asked Questions (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 Court of Appeal decision in the McCloud and Sargeant cases.
Following a consultation exercise, the Government has set out how it intends to remove the unlawful discrimination caused by the transitional protections, which is hereon referred to as the ‘Remedy’.
The Remedy is being implemented in two parts; firstly, rectifying the discrimination regarding future pension provision and secondly, rectifying the discrimination already caused.
A remedy calculator (My Own Pension - McCloud) is also 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.
The current version of the PPS 1987 police retirement calculator is available to current or former members of the PPS 1987 scheme only. The calculator is a work in progress and future versions are planned to include NPPS 2006 scheme members. Members should be aware the calculator is for guidance only and the information provided is an estimate. It is not intended to provide financial advice.
