The Single Public Service Pension Scheme (SPSPS) started on 1 January 2013.  If you joined the public service on or after 1 January 2013 and are working in a pensionable post, this is likely the Pension Scheme that applies to you.  Existing employees who retire/resign and return after a break of 26 weeks or more will be members of the SPSPS on their return.
