McCloud remedy summary and actions for employers

07 / 06 / 2021

The McCloud remedy was implemented to remove age discrimination across public sector schemes.

In 2015, the government introduced reforms to most public service pension schemes, including the NHS Pension Scheme. Scheme members that were close to retirement at the time were protected from moving to the new schemes and could therefore remain in their existing schemes. The Court of Appeal found these protections to be discriminatory against younger members and have since implemented the McCloud remedy to remove the age discrimination.

Our infographic provides employers with an overview of:
