Joining the RPS

Can I join?

T4_T13_content page image_08


The RPS is open to all eligible rail employees who have a legal right to join.


You can join an RPS section if:


  • it’s in your terms of employment – ask your employer if you’re not sure;
  • your employer has chosen the Section for auto-enrolment and you are eligible; or
  • you are offered membership by your employer. 

If you'd like to join and are not being auto-enrolled, speak to your employer about the application process. 

If your application is accepted, you will receive a New Member pack which includes a Guide for members booklet, a Nomination form and BRASS investment form, and other useful information.


Compulsory transfer of employment (TUPE) 

If your role is compulsorily transferred between two employers in the RPS, you can choose whether to transfer your benefits to your new employer’s section.

If accepted, you will be treated as though you have one continuous period of membership.
