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:

  • a timeline of key dates and actions for the McCloud remedy
  • the key information that employers should be raising with affected staff currently.
