2015 Scheme

On 1 April 2015 a new NHS Pension Scheme was introduced which covers all transitioning and new NHS employees. Some members are entitled to remain in the 1995 or 2008 Sections until retirement through the Scheme’s Protection arrangements. The content of this website is being updated in stages to reflect these changes. More information about the 2015 Scheme arrangements can be found here.

Welcome to the members section of the NHS Pension Scheme website.

This section covers every type of NHS worker across both Sections of the Scheme. It explains all the different areas and features of the Scheme along with useful links to help you find your way around.
