Following the Court of Appeal judgement in December 2018, the government has been working to fix the discrimination identified in the policy of transitional protection that was part of the 2015 reforms to public service pension schemes. This consultation sets out the government’s proposals for addressing this discrimination along with the government’s plans for the future.
The government is committed to fixing the discrimination as quickly as possible and welcomes your views on how best to do this.

The scope of the schemes covered by this consultation can also be found on page 3 of the document itself. The consultation began on 16 July 2020 and will close on 11 October 2020.
