As part of their retention activity, NHS England’s People Directorate has commissioned their pension partners, Isio, to deliver online pension seminars targeted at nursing, midwifery, and AHP colleagues aged 50+.

Isio cannot provide personal financial advice. However, this is an opportunity for individuals to get answers to any questions they may have about the NHS Pension Scheme. Isio will help clarify any misunderstanding or confusion and most importantly, provide the accurate information so that staff can make informed decisions about their pension savings and their continuing career options.

The seminars will cover:

  • An introduction to the NHS Pension Scheme and where to find information on pension benefits.
  • The impact of flexible working on pension benefits (eg part time working, step-down, wind-down, retire/return etc).
  • A brief outline of the McCloud judgment.
  • If applicable, how having “Special Class” and “Mental Health Officer” status affects your options.

The booking portal opened to any late career nurse, midwife, or AHP on 3rd October 2022 and will remain open up to 31st March 2023. The seminars are free of charge and will last around 1h and 30 minutes, including time to ask questions.
