Document I am entitled to Tapered Protection, how is this calculated?

Tapered Protection is based on how many months beyond 10 years you were away from your normal pension age (NPA) as at 1 April 2012. For each month beyond 10 years, the protection period is reduced by two months. For example, a member who was 18 months beyond 10 years away from their NPA as at 1 April 2012, would have the tapered protection end date of 31 March 2022 reduced by 36 months (18 months x 2). Tapered protection for this member would end on 31 March 2019 and they would move to the 2015 Scheme on 1 April 2019.

A calculator that tells you the date you will join the new 2015 Scheme is available on our website.
