The date you joined the BT Pension Scheme (BTPS) determines which section of the scheme you are in and the pension you’re entitled to. It will affect the minimum and maximum age you’re allowed to take your pension and the choices you can make. It’s good to know which section your membership is in.

Your BTPS section

Your pension will be different depending on which section you belong to. You, or your financial adviser, can find out more by reading the booklet describing your BTPS section.
