The FDA campaigns on behalf of our members to ensure they receive a fair pension that grants them security in retirement.
We take part in civil service wide negotiations and played a lead role in negotiating the reforms to the civil service pension scheme which came into effect in 2015.

The FDA is also involved with the governance of civil service pensions, with representatives sitting on both the Civil Service Pensions Board and the Civil Service Pension Scheme Advisory Board.

We continually work with departments to protect our members’ benefits and improve the service that My Civil Service Pension (MyCSP) provides.

The FDA also supports members with individual pensions issues and we have a successful track record of ensuring our members receive the benefits they are entitled to and receive the correct advice when planning for the future.

Would you like to discuss your pension with a financial advisor? FDA members are entitled to a free consultation with Lighthouse Financial Advice (worth £150) through FDA Portfolio

Paying into a pension scheme should give you peace of mind and security in retirement – but it’s easy to fall foul of confusing pension rules if your plans change. Find out how the FDA helped one member get his retirement plans back on track.
