    Civil Service Alpha - Transfer In and EPA

    Civil Service Alpha - Transfer In and EPA 16th Apr 18 at 10:44 AM
    I am enrolled in the CS Alpha pension, and have decided to transfer the value of a previous DC pension to Alpha. I've received the quote showing what annual pension this will buy me.

    I'm also opted in to an EPA of NPA-3. However I'm unable to see anything which clarifies whether the annual pension bought by the transfer value will be paid in the three years prior to my NPA, or if it will only be paid after NPA.

    Could anyone shed some light on this? Cheers.
