Certain University employees are eligible, under the governing Regulations of the NHSPS, to continue to participate in the NHSPS during their University employment as an alternative to USS and OSPS.
Your eligibility to remain in the NHSPS is conditional upon you satisfying the following criteria:
- that you are employed in connection with (the purpose of) the Medical School or in a post-graduate institute for medical (or dental) research;
- that you have been in active membership of the NHSPS within the 12 months prior to your current appointment; and
- that you complete part 1 of application form SD65 and return it to the Pensions Office within 3 months of starting. This is not a form you have to complete to join the NHSPS while working in the NHS but the NHS Pensions Agency require you to fill it in if you wish to join the NHSPS at the University.
