The Civil Service gives its staff a choice of pension.
The majority of new civil servants are automatically enrolled on entry into our defined benefit pension, called nuvos.
But if they choose, they can have a personal pension instead, called partnership.
Civil servants value their pension as part of their total pay and reward package. Members contribute towards their pension, and their employers also pay a significant contribution to provide the scheme benefits.
The pension scheme is set by statute. It is managed by Cabinet Office, supported by a Governance Group of representatives nominated by Cabinet Office and the Council of Civil Service Unions.
