Opting Out of the Scheme


You can choose to leave the pension scheme at any time during your employment, although you should carefully consider the benefits that you are giving up. An alternative to opting-out of the pension scheme, is to join the 50/50 section of scheme whereby you pay half the contributions to receive half the benefits (with some exceptions)

If you decide to opt out of the scheme, you will need to complete an opt out form and send it to your employer.

If you are not eligible to a refund then you will be entitled to deferred benefits instead
