Background 

The Royal Mail Pension Plan closed to new entrants with effect from 1 April 2008 (except for some employees who worked for the company and were under age 18 on 31 March 2008). 

Sections B and C of the Plan closed to future accrual on 31 March 2018. The agreement we have reached with the CWU aims to provide innovative retirement benefits. It would provide one scheme for all Royal Mail employees.
