Scottish Housing Associationsā€™ Pension Scheme (SHAPS)

The leading workplace pension scheme for people in the Scottish housing sector. More than 150 employers within the housing sector have chosen us to provide their pension for more than 10,000 employees.
With competitive costs, high levels of service and professionalism we are dedicated to providing workplace pensions for the Scottish housing sector. As a pension scheme provided by TPT Retirement Solutions, one of the leading workplace pension funds in the UK, we have security in strength and size.

TPT's combined strength and size enables us to achieve economies of scale, the benefits of which we pass onto our customers.

Employees who commit to a career in the social housing sector may move between participating employers without having to leave SHAPS, which can be a great incentive.

Saving for Retirement
To help you in retirement, your employer may have automatically enrolled you into a workplace pension scheme. Once enrolled, you, your employer, and the Government all contribute to your pension pot, which you can take when you retire. As a pension provider, we have helped enrol nearly 100,000 employees for more than 700 employers.

Remember, the amount you pay in is a key factor in determining the size of your pension pot at retirement.
