Jul 15 2019


The McCloud case addresses the issues of age discrimination and pension protection in the judges’ and firefighters’ pension schemes.

On 15 July 2019, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury announced, in a written statement, that remedies relating to the McCloud judgement will need to be made in relation to all public service pension schemes.

There is currently no information about how or when any remedy will be put in place but this will have a significant effect on the pension scheme. The full statement can be found on the parliament website.
