BAE Systems Pension Scheme
Passport Benefits

This section applies to members who were previously members of the Principal Civil Service Pension Scheme (PCSPS) and whose employment has been transferred to BAE Systems.
Find out more about the benefits payable in the Passport Booklet relevant to your membership category.
 
Contributions to the Passport section can be paid under SMART Pensions. Paying your contributions in this way means that you could pay lower National Insurance Contributions.
 
You can also choose to pay Additional Voluntary Contributions (AVCs) in order to increase your retirement benefits.  The Trustee has chosen Standard Life for the investment of AVCs.  By accessing the Standard Life website you will be able to find out all the information you need about paying AVCs, the investment choices available, your options on retirement, as well as the forms required to start paying or to change the level of your AVC payments. From here you can also manage your AVC account online by accessing Standard Life's Online Services.

The BAE Systems Pension Scheme Consultative Committee exists to promote a better understanding of issues facing members in the pensions field. Representatives of this Committee are able to support members. They provide a formal channel through which matters that are of particular interest or concern to both in-service and deferred members can be raised. They are also actively involved in improving communication links between the Company and Scheme members. If you would like to discuss a pensions matter, please refer to the  Consultative Committees page for further information and to find the contact details of a Representative local to you.
