Am I eligible for ELC?2024-01-15T21:27:21+00:00

Before being eligible to make an ELC claim, individual scheme members must have completed not less than six years of eligible service (lower tier).  If you have completed 4 years of qualifying service before 1st April 2017, please read JSP 822. Only service accumulated since 1st April 2000 may be counted as eligible service for the purpose of the ELC Scheme.

You are entitled to make three ELC claims in total. You can only make one claim per financial year (1 April- 31 March); however, if you have served between 6 and 8 years, you may be eligible to aggregate all three lower-tier claims together, subject to meeting the qualifying criteria in JSP 822

If you are in your qualifying resettlement phase, you may be eligible to claim under the Joint Funding Initiative (PF FE/HE Scheme).

You can find all the guidance you need here.
