Your Scottish Teachers' pension scheme

There are currently two occupational pension schemes for teachers in Scotland, the Scottish Teachers' Superannuation Scheme (STSS) and the Scottish Teachers’ Pension Scheme 2015 (STPS 2015).

These schemes are administered by the Scottish Public Pensions Agency on behalf of Scottish Ministers. SPPA is also responsible for scheme regulations and for all the administrative tasks required to serve over 73,000 active members, more than 21,000 deferred members and over 79,000 pensioners and dependants.

The two schemes are statutory and guaranteed by law, providing pensions and life assurance for teachers in Scotland.
