Scottish Teachers' Superannuation Scheme

We are currently working on a high volume of retirement applications and therefore need to prioritise our resources to ensure payment of these awards are made on time. Please note that we are therefore currently unable to provide estimates, unless it is for ill health, preserved or to assist your decision making if you are intending to retire within the next few months and have not as yet submitted your application. If your estimate is not in one of these categories you can access your annual benefit statement and an estimate calculator, for your own use, through our secure MyPension service which is available through this website.

SPPA administers the Scottish Teachers' Superannuation Scheme (STSS) on behalf of Scottish Ministers and are also responsible for scheme regulations. SPPA is responsible for all administrative tasks carried out in respect of current and past (deferred) members and STSS pensioners.

You can find the current STSS rules in the Regulations section of this site. Our Policy Branch are responsible for updating these regulations in line with the policies determined by the Scottish Parliament and the UK Government.

The scheme is statutory and guaranteed by law, providing pensions and life assurance for those employed as teachers in Scotland. If you change employer and work in a different part of the UK, you may wish to transfer your pension rights to maintain a continuous pension record.

These pages are designed to provide as much information as possible, whether you are a current member, deferred member, a pensioner receiving benefits from the scheme, or an employer.
