Refreshed Total Reward Statements (TRS) and Annual Benefit Statements (ABS) are now available.
Visit our TRS website to find out how to view your statement.
Each year your pensions records are updated to the 31 March from information sent to us by your employer. This means that your TRS/ABS should be updated to 31 March 2020 (31 March 2019 for General Practitioners).
If your record hasn’t been updated since last year it will be for one of the following reasons:
- Your employer did not send the annual pension update to update your record
- Your record was updated after the data was taken to produce your statement
- Your annual pension update requires more information before it can be placed on your record
If your record falls under one of the above reasons your pension record should be updated ready for the mid-year refresh of the TRS/ABS and will be available for you to view in mid-December 2020.
The employer contributions paid towards your pension increased with effect from 1 April 2019 from 14.38% to 20.68%. The increase of 6.3% was centrally funded and so not paid directly by your employer. As a result of this arrangement the payments are not included in any of the total employer annual contribution figures on your statement. However, the value of employer contributions has no impact on the standard benefits as quoted within your statement.
Information on how your NHS pension, lump sum and survivor benefits have been calculated is available on NHS Pensions website.
