Question:
What happens if I re-join the Scheme at a later date?
Answer:
If you re-join the Scheme, you will begin to build up membership towards a new set of pension benefits, in addition to your deferred benefits. You will usually have the option of keeping these two sets of benefits separate or joining them together to form just one set of benefits. You normally only have 12 months from the date you join to choose to link your deferred membership to your new membership, so you should find out about this as soon as possible.
