RBSelect Childcare Voucher Scheme: October 2018 changes

The Government has launched Tax-Free Childcare to help cover the cost of childcare. This change means we have to close our RBSelect Childcare Voucher Scheme to new participants. As a current user of our childcare voucher scheme, or as someone with children, we wanted you to know about these changes. You can only participate in one scheme but Government rules mean that our RBSelect Childcare Voucher Scheme will only be an option if you're in it by 30 September.

RBSelect Childcare Voucher Scheme

The RBSelect Childcare Voucher Scheme closes to new participants from 1 October 2018 so:

  • If you're not in our scheme but are eligible and want to use it in the future, you'll need to join by 30 September.
  • If you're already in our scheme and want to remain in it, you don't need to do anything, but you need to take vouchers at least once every 12 months to stay in the scheme.
  • If you leave the RBSelect Childcare Voucher Scheme you can't re-join it but you might be able to join the Government scheme.

Tax-Free Childcare

The Government have introduced Tax-Free Childcare to help parents with childcare costs.

What you need to do

  • Decide by 30 September if you want to join, call HR People Services on 0808 100 4242 to make your election. Our Advisers are available Monday to Friday, 8.30am-5pm, except for Wednesdays when we open at 10am
  • Not sure what's best for you - take your time before making the decision to leave the RBSelect Childcare voucher scheme and work out what's right for your family. You can opt out at any time but you can't opt back in once you leave.
