Personally, I fear for the viability of the TPS in the current form primarily due to the ability of schools to pay the additional employer contribution in Sept 2019 ( although the extra payment has been defered for an extra year for state schools). With this in mind an alternative provision may have to be made. Personal circumstance dictates that I will have to apply for a new job in the next couple of years. I am wandering if I would be better off coming out of the TPS and potentially negotiating the possibility of an employer contribution to a SIPP. I am a transition member and I am fairly certain my best 3 in 10 will not come from any future employment. Additionally, the CARE scheme as it stands is good - if you wanting to retire at 67, however, I am fairly certain that I want to be retiring much earlier. Would welcome any thoughts - especially if anybody has managed to get an employer to contribute to anything other than the TPS.
