Ready for Retirement
When you retire, we’ll offer you a choice between your final salary benefits and your CARE benefits for your service between 1 April 2015 and 31 March 2022. This is called the Remedy period.
These are sometimes known as ‘legacy’ benefits and ‘reformed’ benefits.
All Police members started building up pension in the CARE scheme from 1 April 2022, regardless of their previous protection.
To help you decide, we’ll send you a choice letter, known as a Remedial Service Statement (RSS). This will show your pension benefits side-by-side in your final salary and CARE scheme for the Remedy period, to help you decide which option is the right one for you.
We'll start offering members this choice on retirement from October 2023.
