Team Pensions photoThe NHS Pension Scheme is open to staff between the ages of 16 and 75 and who are directly employed by the Trust. Staff are automatically placed into the NHS Pension Scheme when they start working for the Trust. Those not wishing to be members of the scheme need to complete an opt out form (see leaving or taking a break from the scheme below).

Staff can access their annual pension benefit statement using ESRs Self Service. Details of how to do this are in the total reward statement section below

Our in-house NHS Pension team also administer the Local Government Pension scheme, along with the National Earnings Savings Trust Scheme pension (NEST) for MPFT staff.
