Amendments to the Teachers’ Pension Scheme regulations from 1 September 2019

The Teachers’ Pensions etc. (Amendment) Regulations 2019 (Statutory Instrument 2019/1134) were laid before the Houses of Parliament on 17 July 2019. These generally came into force on 1 September 2019, but in certain cases, the amendments have retrospective effect.

There have been two Supreme Court decisions that have ruled certain regulations to be discriminatory and not in compliance with overriding equalities legislation. This has led to a need for all public service pension schemes to change their provisions and for the governing regulations to be amended.

There are also some minor amendments to the Teachers’ Additional Voluntary Contribution Scheme and the Teachers (Compensation for Redundancy and Premature Retirement) Regulations 2015.

For more information about the regulation changes take a look at our factsheet.
