BBCPA opens up membership to deferred pensioners

Currently, only individuals who are drawing a pension from the BBC Pension Scheme, or a pension into which the BBC has contributed, are eligible to join the BBC Pensioners Association.

From 1 November 2020 members of the BBC Pension Scheme who have a deferred pension in the Scheme will now also be eligible to join the BBC Pensioners Association. This will also include anyone who has a pension arrangement into which the BBC has contributed but the pension has not yet come into payment.

Membership of the Association would enable deferred pensioners to enjoy the same benefits of BBCPA membership as pensioners, including access to the technical support team on pension matters relating to the BBC Pension Scheme.

They will also benefit from a range of special offers and discounts, some of which will be similar to those enjoyed by existing BBC staff.

If any BBCPA members have friends/colleagues whom they know have deferred their BBC Pension can they please let them know that they will be very welcome to join us.
