Your NHS Pension Choice
What is the basic pension calculator?
The basic pension calculator is a web-based modelling tool to support the information-gathering activities of members of the NHS Pension Scheme during the Choice Exercise. The calculator enables members of the NHS Pension Scheme to see how the design of the scheme's two sections (i.e. the 1995 and 2008 sections) affects the amounts of benefits that can be paid at retirement.
The basic pension calculator is intended to provide a dynamic demonstration of the differences between the designs of the 1995 and 2008 sections of the NHS Pension Scheme as they affect annual pensions and lump sum retiring allowances at different retirement ages and with different amounts of reckonable service. The calculator also demonstrates the flexibilities afforded members of the NHS Pension Scheme through pension commutation.
