Document How are pension payments made for members called up for the armed forces (MOD) as Reservists?

For members of the NHS Pension Scheme who are called up for service, they will be regarded as being on authorised leave of absence. For the duration of their call-out, employer and employee contributions will be paid at the level of the member’s pensionable pay in payment immediately prior to call-out. The Ministry of Defence (MOD) will take responsibility for the employer contributions.

The MOD will communicate with the NHS employer so that all the arrangements for making such payments can be put in place. It is also possible that the MOD will arrange for the employees contributions to be deducted from their salary and paid as directed by the NHS employer.
