This poster supports our work commissioned by NHS England and NHS Improvement to help employers use the NHS Pension Scheme to support workforce retention.

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.
