The Department of Health has published updated NHS Pension Scheme calculators, which are based on the proposed NHS Scheme specific arrangements as contained in the Heads of Agreement.
These calculators will enable members of the NHS Pension Scheme to estimate their future benefits and see any changes to their current scheme benefits, under the Government’s proposed new scheme.
The calculators, for Agenda for Change staff and doctors, are available on the Department of Health website.
Increased contribution calculators
It is important to recognise that the reform of public sector pensions is separate from the increase in NHS Pension Scheme member contributions.
The Department of Health previously published a separate employee contributions calculator for 2012/13 which enables NHS Pension Scheme members to calculate how much their contributions will increase, if at all, on a monthly basis, on both a gross and net of tax relief basis.
