The Teachers’ Pension Scheme is the second largest public sector pension scheme in the UK with over 2 million members. TCS has been awarded a 10-year contract to manage the scheme administration services using a future-ready, digitally enabled, omnichannel platform powered by TCS BaNCS™. This will enable accurate administration of pension records, payment of benefits, effective scheme finance management, proactive member engagement and easy access to information.

TCS is the largest provider of software and IT services in the UK, with a large and diverse workforce spread across 30 locations around the country. As part of the partnership with DfE, TCS plans to expand its already significant presence in the UK life and pensions industry by establishing a service hub in Darlington.

The resulting service will be highly agile and responsive to the needs of its members and employers,” said Vivekanand Ramgopal, President, BFSI Products & Platforms, TCS.
