Social Housing Pension Scheme (SHPS)

The scheme of choice for the social housing sector

More than 500 housing organisations have chosen us to provide pensions for more than 65,000 employees. Originally set up in 1977, the scheme has grown with the expansion of the social housing sector. Employees who commit to a career in the social housing sector may move between employers without having to leave SHPS.
