Teachers’ pension scheme regulations: proposed changes

Closes 25 Jun 2019

Opened 15 May 2019


We are seeking views regarding changes to unmarried partner and same-sex survivor benefits in the England and Wales Teachers' pension scheme.

Why We Are Consulting

The consultation concerns proposals to change the Teachers' pension scheme rules to provide civil partners and same-sex spouses with the same survivor pension rights as widows, the removal of the nomination form requirement for unmarried partner benefits and other minor amendments.
