The NHS Pension Scheme introduced a Career Revalued Scheme with effect from 1 April 2015. This is referred to as the 2015 Section. This section applies to eligible joiners, and all members who, at 1 April 2012, were 13 years and 5 months or more away from their Normal Pension Age (NPA).
Members who are between 10 and 13 years 5 months away from their NPA as at 1 April 2012, will have tapered protection, meaning that at some point, they will become members of the 2015 section prior to retirement.
Members with less than 10 years to NPA as at 1 April 2012, will remain in either the 1995 section or 2008 section of the NHS Pension Scheme until retirement.
