I'm a contributing member

Only those employees who previously TUPE transferred from the public sector with an entitlement to membership of Compass' "GAD approved" pensions will be current contributing members.

We have separate GAD approved arrangements for former members of the NHSPS (i.e. National Health Service); the LGPS (i.e. Local Government) and the PCSPS (i.e. Civil Service).  These are all sections within the Compass Group Pension Plan.

GAD - Government Actuary's Department.

GAD approved - GAD has determined that the pension scheme offered by Compass is "broadly equivalent" to the public sector pension scheme that you were previously a member of or entitled to join.

GAD Certificate - Confirmation that the scheme is GAD approved.
