Transferred in Service and Transitional Arrangements
Update from the General Secretary.
After raising our concern, we have received some positive news from the Home Office today, that affects members who have accrued pension rights relating to other employments before joining the police.
If you are a member who has worked outside the police, then you may be able to transfer in those pension rights to your existing police pension scheme (PPS or NPPS). This may enable you to get transitional protection if you were not entitled to it before, or to get an improved level of transitional protection. This will benefit you financially.
