Understanding your NHS Pension
The NHS Pension Scheme annual allowance (AA) and tax ready reckoner is designed to help staff understand the benefits they are building up in the scheme and their annual allowance liability.
The ready reckoner will provide members of the NHS Pension Scheme with a broad insight into their AA position, including whether or not the tapered AA may apply to their circumstances. It will also provide an estimated breakdown of the total annual cost of scheme membership and estimate how much their NHS pension is projected to increase by. The ready reckoner looks at the 2020/21 tax year only.
