New tier 2019 2020 annualisation calculator for 2015 NHS Pension Scheme

NHS Pensions have released a new calculator to help GP 2015 Scheme GPs in England and Wales calculate which they should be on throughout the 2019/20 period.

However, the new spreadsheet however comes with conflicting advice that “…2015 Scheme GPs use the calculator during the year in addition to at year end which will reduce the risk of under or over paying contributions.”

We have asked for clarification on this since, for locums, the advice on the current Form B is “The tiered rate box you tick must remain consistent in all the pension forms you complete from April to March and must correlate with box b at Part 2. If, at year end, it is found that the rate was too low you will have to pay arrears based on the correct tiered rate. If the rate was too high you will be due a refund. If you have relocated during the year you must contact the relevant bodies regarding arrears.”

We’ll update this article as soon as we’ve had clarification.

"I started working as a locum GP in January this year and NASGP have been invaluable in helping to co-ordinate my bookings and organise all the administrative aspects of sessional work which can be complex and time consuming. Their client support is outstanding and they have always resolved any queries promptly and personally. They care about the service they provide and I would not hesitate to recommend them to any sessional GPs who want to minimise time spent on administration and focus on providing patients with high quality care."
