Who can access My NHS Pension
My NHS Pension is in the early stages of development, which means we're continuing to develop and add to the features currently available.
Registration to My NHS Pension is currently only available to selected users. We're continuing the roll-out of onboarding to My NHS Pension, and other members will be contacted once they're also able to register.
The NHS Pension Scheme member groups we are currently inviting to register are:
- non-ESR active members
- non-ESR deferred members
- pensioners who claimed benefits since 2015, excluding child dependents
If you are not in one of these member groups, we’ll contact you once you’re also able to register for My NHS Pension. ESR users can still access their Total Reward Statement via ESR.
Accessing My NHS Pension
If you've a received a letter from us inviting you to register for My NHS Pension with your unique codes, you can sign in to My NHS Pension.
Before starting your registration for My NHS Pension, we recommend reading Guidance for Users of My NHS Pension (PDF: 312KB) which contains further guidance and troubleshooting information.
You can find your unique alphanumeric codes in your letter.
You'll be asked to provide known facts, including:
- first name
- date of birth (DD/MM/YYYY)
- National Insurance number
- NHS Pensions member number
Your member number can usually be found on your payslip listed as ‘SD ref’, or you can find it at the top of your current Total Rewards Statement (TRS) / Annual Benefit Statement (ABS), listed as 'member number'.
When inputting your member number to register for My NHS Pension, just include the 8-digit number, you do not need to add ‘SD’ at the start.
Your National Insurance number must not include any spaces when inputting.
If you need help finding your member number, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Username and password
Your username can be up to 15 characters. Usernames are unique, so it will be rejected if the username is already in use.
The system is set up to ensure you use the strongest but easiest to remember password.
Your password must:
- be at least 12 characters long
- contain only letters.
We suggest that you try using the ‘3 random words’ method as recommended by the National Cyber Security Council (NCSC).
Which email address to use
We recommend that you use a personal email address to register for My NHS Pension. This way, if you ever leave NHS employment, you'll still be able to access your account.
Once registration is completed, you'll be sent an email for verification.
Check all your folders, including junk, for an email from ‘email@example.com’.
This email will include a link that will verify your account. The link will take you to the My NHS Pension portal and a verification message will appear.
If you've already clicked the link, an error message will appear.
If you're not sure if you've been verified, then log in and if there's no reminder to verify your email then it has been completed.
Your answers to your chosen security questions should be alphanumeric.
You are not able to include punctuation or special characters.
Once registered, you'll be asked to log in.
You'll be asked to set up a two-factor authentication.
You can choose either:
- Authenticator app - popular choices are Google, Apple or Microsoft authenticators
Follow the on-page actions to complete either authentication.
For both options, you'll be presented with recovery codes. We recommend you store these in a secure place. These codes will be required if you lose access to your phone or authentication device.
Some authenticators may ask you to authenticate CompendiaID instead of MyNHSPension.nhsbsa.nhs.uk - authenticate CompendiaID if asked. We're working to update this.
