Forms for Members

If you joined OSPS after 1 October 2017 you are in Investment Builder. If you joined before that you are in the Defined Benefit or CARE section.

Opting out

If you are a new joiner of OSPS you will be in Investment Builder, which is largely administered by Legal and General. You cannot opt out of this advance. There is no paper form you can complete to opt out from the start. If you have been given OPT1 it is no longer valid.

If you want to opt out of Investment Builder from the start you have to wait for your starter letter from Legal and General. You will have about one month from the date of the letter to log on and opt out online and get a refund.

OPT2DC (pdf) - Use this form to withdraw from Investment Builder after the above deadline. You will not get a refund. We will not accept this form to opt out from the start.

OPT2 (pdf) - Use this form to opt out of the CARE section (ie you joined OSPS before 1 October 2017). If you do this you will NOT be able to rejoin the CARE section.
