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.”

Join NASGP’s free three-month trial for weekly updates on  changes to the NHS Pension Scheme.

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 am so glad and grateful for being a member of NASGP's BOB locum chambers. I started with them in a critical period of my career as I was a newly-qualified GP, looking for work in a new area with a new virus hardly hitting the world and the jobs market.

Richard and Ali's help was a godsend. They introduced me to locum work in a friendly and kind manner, provided valuable support and excellent service through the ever-improving LocumDeck and NASGP website. With the help of the chambers, I received a face to face tutorial on Emis (I trained on SystmOne) and my online profile was promoted on a growing network of GP practices throughout Buckinghamshire, Oxford and Berkshire.

I was able to work in different GP practices with different staff and patient demographics, massively increasing my clinical experience, resilience and communication skills.

It also helped me funnelling down all the job offers I received through my locum work until I recently agreed for a salaried position in a GP practice that I love working at. "
