McCloud Remedy Announced



The Government has announced a remedy to address the age discrimination contained in the 2015 Public Service Pension Schemes transitional arrangements, including the Armed Forces Pension Scheme.


Following a consultation period in which two remedial options were considered a decision has been made in favour of “Deferred Choice Underpin”.


The Chief Secretary to the Treasury said:


"The significant majority of responses backed the introduction of a ‘deferred choice underpin’ (DCU) as the way to remedy the identified discrimination. This approach will enable eligible members, when they retire with a pension, to choose whether the legacy or reformed schemes would be better for them for the period between 1 April 2015 to 31 March 2022. Respondents offered strong and convincing arguments to support this view, which are set out within this consultation response. It is clear to me that the DCU will provide greater certainty for members and is also the right approach for schemes and the government. "
