Why attend?

The option to give up protection exercise will give members of the 2008 section of the NHS Pension Scheme, with full or tapered protection, a one-off opportunity to move to the 2015 Scheme from 1 April 2015. This is because, for some members, the higher accrual rate in the 2015 Scheme could deliver a higher pension at retirement than the 2008 section. The exercise will affect approximately 40,000 members of the NHS Pension Scheme.

In this webinar, you'll learn:

  • who is affected by the option to give up protection exercise
  • how the exercise will be run and
  • what you can do as an employer to support your staff with their decision.

There will be an opportunity for questions at the end of the webinar.

You can find out more about the option to give up protection exercise on our webpage.

Who should attend?

This webinar is aimed at HR and pension teams to help them prepare for the exercise and support affected staff with their decision.
