Transferring in a previous pension

​Transferring a pension into your scheme

If you have previous pension benefits, you may wish to transfer them into your pension with the Government of Jersey.  

Transfers can take a considerable amount of time to complete, so we advise that you start the process as soon as you become a member of the scheme.

If you are considering transferring pension from another public sector pension scheme in the UK, there is a requirement to complete the transfer process within 12 months of joining or re-joining your scheme.

The PEPT will accept transfers from:

  • public sector pension schemes in the UK

  • an occupational pension from your previous employer

  • a personal pension plan

What to do

If you are considering transferring your previous pension in to your scheme, you will need to send us a cash equivalent transfer value (CETV) from your previous pension scheme.

The following booklets will provide you with detail on how to obtain a CETV

PEPF transfer in pension booklet

JTSF transfer in pension booklet

Forward us the all of the following documents that have been sent to you from your pension provider 

  • a recently dated CETV

  • your transfer discharge forms

What to expect

Once we receive your CETV we will prepare an estimate that will show the earned pension and/or service credit that the transfer will buy in your scheme.  You can then use the estimate to help you in making your decision to transfer.
