Clergy Pensions Scheme

The Board provides annual benefit statements to members of the Church of England Pensions Schemes (CEPS) that give;

  • the prospective benefits payable at normal retirement date; and,
  • the benefits payable on death before retirement.

The Board issues a booklet with the statement that gives detailed information about the benefits provided by CEPS.  You can download it from our forms and booklets page.

There is a facility to pay additional voluntary contributions ('AVCs'), details are available on our AVCs page.

Members who require further information about CEPS or have any questions about their membership or benefits can use the link on the right to find details of how to Contact the Pensions Department.
