Transferring benefits to another public service pension scheme

Transfers-out to other public service scheme is still permissible and special terms are available if you wish to do this. Quotations are available on request from SPPA.

I am now working in the private sector

From April 2015, the law changed and it is now no longer permitted to transfer benefits from a public sector scheme to a defined contribution pension scheme which are typically offered in the private sector. Your new employer will tell you what type of scheme they provide.
