Other pension schemes

If you are a contributing member and have pensions benefits built up in another pension arrangement, you may be able to transfer them into the Fund.

Arrangements include:

  • A previous employer's scheme
  • A personal or stakeholder pension

You may only transfer benefits that you built up while you were not working for your employer and contributing to the TfL Pension Fund. You cannot transfer any benefits into the fund which consist wholly or partly of Pension Credit Rights following a pension sharing order on divorce. The transfer payments received may credit you with additional pensionable service in the Fund.

If you have an Additional Voluntary Contribution (AVC) plan with another provider that you wish to transfer, the value can be transferred into the TfL Pension Fund's AVC plan.

If you would like to investigate a transfer, you should read the Transferring In Benefits guide, which explains the process and what you need to do.
