By law, we have to publish the full scheme each year. The documents below are the legal text defining the scheme. You do not need to read these to make a claim.

New scheme rules come into force on 1 April each year, and are valid until 31 March of the following year.

We publish the three most recent schemes on our website. If you need to see an older scheme, please contact us.
