Are the NHS pension benefits the same for your spouse or partner?

If you are in receipt of a pension the rules are the same for your spouse or partner, whether or not you had been a locum GP, salaried GP or partner. There is a 50% spouse's pension, and if you have a dependent child under 23 then they get 25%, and if you have a child who has special needs and not capable of independent living then there is no minimum age applicable for them.

And if you are not married, you need to fill in form PN1 to nominate you partner to receive your pension benefits.
