On 5 June 2018, the Trustee wrote to Section A and B members who are potentially affected by a court application currently being brought by BT.
BT has applied to Court for a judicial review of an HM Treasury decision that could impact how pensions in payment are calculated for certain Section B members.
From time to time the Trustee carries out a formal review of the actuarial factors which are used to calculate certain pension benefits.
The Trustee of the Scheme has updated the Privacy Notice, which explains how we manage the personal information that we hold.
BT and the Trustee of the BT Pension Scheme have reached agreement on the 2017 triennial funding valuation.
As a member of the BT Pension Scheme (BTPS) you have the option to make Additional Voluntary Contributions. This section provides a high level description of this facility.
The terms of the AVC facility are subject to the Rules of BTPS and HMRC regulations, which will prevail if there is any conflict with the information on this website.
If you are unsure about any aspect of investing AVCs in BTPS, you should seek independent financial advice as government regulations prohibit BT, the BTPS Trustee or the BT Pension Scheme from providing advice on investing in AVCs.
If you have any AVC benefits and are approaching retirement or considering your retirement options, please read the information included in the Additional options at retirement and Pension Wise - free guidance pages.
