You may recall our previous advice about the Government passing legislation at very short notice introducing a cap of £95,000 on public-sector exit payments. As this amount includes your lifetime pension pay, this will impact on members with long service, moderate pay who take early retirement.
We have now been alerted that the Government is now proposing further changes to your pension scheme which would also reduce the financial benefit the scheme offers.
The branch will submit a consultation response on your behalf. However, we ask that you, as our member, submit an individual response, so that the Government receives a clear message that further cuts to pay are not acceptable.
Please use the model letter attached below, copying and pasting it to the Government email address provided.
Thank you for your support. We are stronger when we work together.
