The value of the NHS Pension Scheme

14 / 12 / 2016

Our new poster is designed to support your conversations with staff about pensions and to help you explain the benefits of being a member of the scheme. 

The poster shows six of the key features that staff told us are the most important to them, these are:

  • benefits are secure and guaranteed by the government
  • pensions are increased each year to help keep up with the rising cost of living
  • options are available for members to increase their benefits and retire flexibly, to suit their own needs
  • the scheme provides valuable life assurance and benefits on ill health
  • employers make a significant financial contribution to the scheme
  • contributions are tax free, bringing down the cost of membership.

We have wide range of resources available on our pension resource library to support you with a delivery of the NHS Pension Scheme locally. Your feedback is very important to us, please tell us what you think about our products and resources by emailing
