Teachers’ Pensions (TPS)

Teachers’ Pensions Scheme

Teachers’ Pensions (TP) is a defined benefit arrangement which means it is based on your salary and service, rather than investments.  So your pension is guaranteed to provide a regular source of index-linked income when you retire but you can also take some of it as a tax-free lump sum.  Membership provides other benefits such as death in service cover and survivor benefits.

Employees in academic and academic related posts are automatically entered into TP.

Members should register for a My Pension Online account on the Teachers’ Pensions website where access to personalised content and interactive help is available.

To register, you will need your National Insurance number and/or Teachers’ Pensions reference number, which can be obtained by contacting us, if needed.
