Membership and opting out

New scheme members are normally entered automatically into the scheme.

If you are eligible but do not want to join or wish to leave the Scheme you may opt out of Scheme membership at the time you take up employment or at a later date.

If you do opt out of membership of the Scheme, you may be  allowed to rejoin the Scheme at a later date.  Further details can be obtained from your employer representative.

The Auto Enrolment arrangements will mean that for individuals who have opted out of the pension scheme your employer must enrol you back into the Scheme every three years unless you are not covered by the Auto Enrolment arrangements.

The form to opt out of the Scheme must be obtained from the cps.mailbox@aonhewitt.com and once completed returned to your HR representative.
