Contact & Support


There are a number of associations that pensioners can join to keep in touch with former colleagues and friends. They hold regular events open to all members and offer support when required.

London Transport Pensioners' Association

The London Transport Pensioners’ Association (LTPA) protects and promotes the interests of pensioners. Four of its committee members along with elected pensioner representatives from the Pensions Consultative Council (PCC) attend the TfL Pensioners’ Forum which is a regular meeting with senior TfL managers to discuss matters affecting pensioners. Membership is free.

London Transport Superannuitants' Association

The LT Superannuitants’ Association (LTSA) is open to all TfL/LU pensioners. The life membership fee of £10 has been suspended for the next year to encourage new members. Monthly meetings take place at TfL’s Palestra offices near Southwark station.  The LTSA Newslink magazine is at the moment suspended but it is hoped to be restarted soon along with day visits in and around London to places of interest.

Also, the yearly day out to Brighton where one can enjoy lunch at the Hove Deep Sea Anglers club  followed by tea and cakes at the home of the LTSA Chairman. The aim of the LTSA  for 2024 is to have its own web site up and running as early as possible in 2024 the domain name we are hoping to have is

The LTSA needs  your actual support, so that it can continue to contribute towards maintaining the running of the LTPA which is crucial in continuing the accountability to the membership of the TfL Pension Fund via the LTPA nominated Pensioners Forum representatives
