Teachers' Pension Schemes member contribution tiers 2017

Following the changes introduced in 2015 it was agreed that salary bands that determine the rate of member contributions within the Teachers’ Pension Schemes1 would increase annually in line with Consumer Price Inflation2. In so doing it is hoped that it will reduce the potential for members drifting through the tiers as a result of standard national pay increases. Both the Department for Education (England and Wales) and the Department of Education (Northern Ireland) have recently announced that the salary bands will be increased by 1% effective from 1 April 2017.
