Fair deal

Fair deal

The Teachers' Pensions (Amendment) Regulations 2014, SI 2014/424, amend the Teachers' Pensions Regulations 2010, SI 2010/990, as previously amended, which govern the Teachers' Pension Scheme ("the TPS"). The 2014 amendments facilitate the implementation of the new Fair Deal - a non-statutory policy issued by HM Treasury in October 2013 (and provide for the third and final year of increased employee contribution rates, as recommended by Lord Hutton as part of his review into the affordability and sustainability of public sector pension schemes). Amendments are made to existing arrangements to allow for access to the TPS for a new type of employee.

Regulations 3 to 7 amend the 2010 Regulations so as to implement new Fair Deal. Access to the TPS is expanded to allow a previously excluded type of employee (one who has been out-sourced from the public sector to an independent provider delivering public services) to retain their membership of the scheme. Individual members continue to have access to the TPS while they remain employed on the out-sourced contract, and their access will continue following any subsequent compulsory transfers, so long as it is in respect of that same public service contract.
