Welcome to the Railways Pension Scheme’s (RPS) page. The RPS scheme is generally available to Network Rail staff who have completed five years continuous service within the organisation.
You can learn more about the scheme, the benefits it offers and the costs involved by downloading and reading the RPS65 Scheme booklet.
There’s a wealth of information to be found on the Railway Pension Scheme (RPS) website. The Network Rail section of the RPS has gone through some changes to ensure we keep this pension option affordable and open, not just for existing members, but for members of staff who join in the future. You can learn more about these changes by clicking the links below.
If you are already a member you can login (or register) at the link below and learn more about your own unique benefits.
