This section has been created so you can easily access all information required regarding the various factors used within the Teachers' Pensions Scheme.

Please be advised that factors are subject to change. Teachers’ Pensions will use the factor that is in effect at the date of our final calculation, which may lead to differences between the final calculation and estimate quotes which used factors that have since been superseded.
