Document Why has my transfer into the Scheme purchased fewer years membership than I had with my previous pension provider?

When transferring your pension from a previous pension provider into either the 1995 Section or the 2008 Section of the NHS Pension Scheme, the length of membership that you will purchase in the NHS is not dependent on the length of membership you had in the other scheme.

The membership credit, or pensionable earnings credit if transferring into the 2015 Scheme, is determined by an actuarial calculation that is applied to the transfer value offered by your previous pension provider.

Please see the related article 'How is the value of a transfer into the NHS Pension Scheme calculated?' below for more information.
