NHS Pension Management Service
Our NHS Pension Management is a highly specialist service, unique to BW Medical Accountants for Consultants, Hospital Doctors, NHS Foundation Trusts, GPs, Locums, Dentists & senior Healthcare Staff.
How does the NHS Pension work?
The complexities of the NHS Pension scheme are fiendishly difficult to fathom, even for industry experts. Put simply, it is a pension scheme for all staff working in the NHS, from doctors and nurses to office staff. But the framework is ever changing and can be complex for healthcare professionals to understand. Our NHS pension experts and mathematicians have had to develop a complex forecasting model to help ensure we can stay ahead of any issues that may arise as a result of the continually changing landscape around the NHS Pension Scheme. Keeping you one step ahead of the scheme means that you can make choices informed by facts and figures.
There are different types of NHS scheme – which one you’re in will depend on when you joined the scheme. It can get confusing, even for NHS staff, which is why our specialist NHS pension advice is so invaluable.
What can BW Medical do to help?
BW Medical Accountants initially flagged the catalogue of errors being made by the NHS Pension Agency (NHSPA) when issuing statements, several years ago. Information provided by NHSPA is unreliable and continues, at times, to be highly inaccurate. As our specialist medical accountants have the expertise readily available in-house, despite the laborious administration required, we took a proactive stance on the NHS pension to ensure BW Medical clients have the required support and guidance regarding their position and available options. As your personal financial position can often have a major impact on your career decisions and life choices the two tend to go hand-in-hand. Our NHS Pension experts can support clients from qualification through to retirement.
Our NHS pension process
We have a very specific and meticulous process for our NHS Pension Management Service, to ensure accuracy. Our medical accountants and regulated financial advisers work together to deliver this specialist NHS pension advice. They complete a review of your career history, reconcile your pension figures and complete the complex calculations to establish your pension tax position and produce your comprehensive pension report. This includes an element of forecasting so you can plan ahead! Should you be likely to breach tax limits then you can access regulated financial advice via Sanlam, if required.
