Document What is the pensionable membership credited from my transfer in to the 2015 Scheme and how is it calculated?

The amount of transfer value does not determine the pensionable membership credited from the transfer.

Calendar length membership in the former scheme is credited as pensionable membership in the NHS Pension Scheme.

Pensionable membership can only be counted once therefore any concurrent membership with any other pension scheme also being transferred, or NHS Pension Scheme membership is ignored for the credit.

Pensionable membership in the 2015 Scheme is used towards considering the entitlement to certain NHS Pension Scheme benefits but not used in the calculation of those benefits. Information on how the transfer in is used to calculate your benefits can be found in the related article How is the value of a transfer into the NHS Pension Scheme
