Welcome to the National Grid Pensions Website
This website provides information to current and past electricity and gas employees about their pension arrangements. If you are not sure which scheme you are a member of, please hover over the images below to see the qualifying criteria. Newly recruited staff and joiners over the last 10 years are likely to be members of the National Grid UK Pension Scheme (DC Section).

If you joined the Scheme on or before 31 March 2002 you are likely to be a member of the DB Section. This section closed to most new members from 1 April 2002 and to new Transco employees from 4 September 2001, so if you joined after these dates, you are likely to be a member of the DC Section.
