Pensions calculator

We recommend that you visit the NHS Pension Scheme calculator to work out what this means for you.
As all current members of the scheme will have ‘accrued rights’ i.e. the pension they earned before the new scheme, and the improved accrual rate, they may be able to retire earlier than their state pension age.
You should enter the details into the calculator – pay particular attention to the guidance as entering incorrect information will give you an incorrect result!
This shouldn’t be taken as an actual pensions statement – it is just an estimate to show you the difference between the old and the new scheme.
It can be found by clicking the link: www.dh.gov.uk/health/agenda-calculator/
