In the legal case known as Sargeant, the Court of Appeal found that the transitional protections in the FPS 2015 unlawfully discriminated against certain members of the scheme.

In December 2019 the employment tribunal made an interim order that treated claimants as having satisfied the age criteria regardless of their actual age, thereby providing protection to those members to be treated as members of FPS 1992.

Government have confirmed their intent to extend the same treatment to all members of the public service pension schemes.
