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.
If you cannot carry on working because of serious ill health or disability, you may be able to retire and draw your Scheme pension immediately without reduction for early payment.
You have to satisfy BT’s medical retirement criteria; if you do, then you will receive an ill-health pension and lump sum. These will not be reduced (even though they are being paid early). In addition, you will receive an enhancement to your Pensionable Service.
You can find out how ill-health retirement is worked out by referring to the Section A Member Booklet in the Useful documents section of this website.
To apply to the Trustee for ill health retirement please contact the administration team via the contact form.
