BTPS ‘Enhancement’ Window - Update
5 August 2011
In July 2011, BT introduced an "enhancement window", at the time of the initial announcement BT were still considering the suggestion by the union that the scope of the proposal should be extended.
Under the Enhancement Window, until 30 September 2011, anyone leaving BT and immediately taking their pension will be covered by the pre-1st July 2011 commutation factors if that would be better for them.
Following further discussions, BT has now confirmed that if individuals want to make use of the "enhancement window" and remain in employment with BT, then applications will be sympathetically considered on a case by case basis.
Anyone who has declined this option should contact the branch office.
BT has also confirmed that there will be no other changes to those in scope for the "window".
