Are you affected by Goodwin?

The Teachers’ Pension Scheme has recently changed it's rules regarding survivor benefits.

The change has resulted from a claim that survivor benefit rules in the Teachers’ Pension Scheme were discriminatory towards female members in an opposite-sex marriage or civil partnership on the grounds of sexual orientation – known as the Goodwin case.

The change being made will provide female members in an opposite-sex marriage or civil partnership with the same survivor pension rights as all other members who are in a marriage or civil partnership.
