SPPA is undertaking an exercise to identify any pensions paid to survivors of same sex marriages or civil partnerships and review those where the scheme member had pre 1988 (1990 in the police) service that was not used in the award. SPPA will contact individuals whose survivor pensions have been revised to arrange for the revised rate and any arrears to be put into payment.

For further information please see your pension scheme circular which can be found under Scheme Governance and Legislation - circulars. Date added 2 July 2019.
