Most representatives work in the NHS, and members also represent the Armed Forces and colleagues that work in a university setting. Each sector has its own pension scheme, and the committee works collectively to discuss, decide, and recommend solutions to matters of concern across those schemes. Members can also comment on and contribute to the BDA’s response to any changes made by government to pension regulations.

Our priorities

  • To ensure any proposed changes to pension legislation is discussed and responded to fairly
  • To ensure pension changes are in the best interest of members
  • To ensure that areas of concern are discussed objectively.
