Document If I have both officer and practitioner posts, how will my award or estimate be calculated?

When calculating your pension benefits at retirement we will automatically calculate the most favourable method taking account of any officer pensionable membership before, during, or after becoming a practitioner. For example;
  • It may be more favourable to award a separate officer final salary pension and a separate practitioner dynamised earnings pension.
  • It may be more favourable to award just one practitioner pension that takes account of all eligible periods of officer membership.
  • It may be more favourable to award one practitioner pension that includes some officer membership and a separate officer pension that takes account of the remaining officer membership.
For a detailed explanation of the way that your award or estimate has been calculated please contact the Practitioner team at
