Transferring a pension into your scheme

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.

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

JTSF transfer in pension booklet
Forward us the all of the following documents that have been sent to you from your pension provider
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.
