The Contributory Pension and Assurance Scheme (CPAS) is administered by XPS Pensions Group and was closed to new members in 2007


All information for the Scheme is available on the CPAS Compendia web site which is owned and maintained by XPS.

This site includes member documents including the Expressions of Wishes Form and all current factsheets relating to the Scheme. Active members are also able to produce their own retirement quotations via Compendia to assist with retirement planning.

All members of CPAS have a username and log-in, but if for some reason you have not got these details, or yours do not work, please contact the CPAS helpline on the details below.

Pension Decision Service

Whether you find planning your retirement daunting or exciting, what’s most important is getting the right outcome for you.

To support you in making an informed choice, the Trustees have made available, at no cost to you, The Pension Decision Service.

Please watch this video (password ‘mercer’), which outlines why the Pension Decision Service forms an important part of the support provided to you by the Trustees when deciding how to take your benefits.

Further details of the service can be found here and will also be outlined in your Retirement Pack.
