Members must be part of the MAIN section before they can elect to opt into the 50/50 section of the Scheme.

It is the responsibility of the Scheme employer to assess the appropriate rate for each of their employees and for each post that their employees may hold in a reasonable and consistent manner. The employer must also notify their scheme members of any revision to their employee contribution rate.
