This option is for members of the 2015 Scheme only.
You can buy out the reduction that would apply if you claimed your NHS pension before your normal pension age.
In the 2015 Scheme, this is age 65 or the same as your State Pension age if that is later.
Your normal pension age may rise during your membership of the Scheme if the State Pension age rises.
