Teachers' Pensions


Set of scales

In June 2019 the Supreme Court refused the Government permission to reverse the Court of Appeal’s December 2018 judgment in the McCloud and Sargeant cases.

The judgement found that both the judges’ and firefighters’ pension schemes became unfavourable to some of their members, when the career average arrangement was introduced in 2015. These regulation changes now need to be rectified on the grounds of age discrimination.

The outcome applies to all main public service pension schemes, including the Teachers’ Pension Scheme.
