What’s my SD number?

'SD' stands for Superannuation Division and is also known as "NHSPS reference number". You can find your SD number on any correspondence sent to you from NHS pensions, on some payslips and your online Total Reward Statement; it's an eight digit figure and starts SD. If you can't find your SD number, you can call the NHS pensions helpline on 0300 330 1346.

Once you have your SD number, add it to your settings in LocumDeck so that it will automatically populate all your locum Form A and Form Bs every month, along with your invoices - all free with NASGP membership.

  1. I've been asked for my "SD" number to change my address with NHS PENSIONS. There is no such number on any "advice of payment " forms I've received. Is the "SD" number the same as my "pension reference "?
