Document What is Choice / Choice 2?

NHS Pension Choice provides all eligible members of the NHS Pension Scheme with a one off option to move all of their membership from the 1995 Section into the 2008 Section if they wish.
With the introduction of the 2015 Scheme a second Choice exercise was announced called Choice 2. This afforded a further opportunity to those members who had received a Choice statement and had previously elected to remain in the 1995 Section. The second Choice exercise was limited to those members who had no protection or tapered protection and would therefore transition to the 2015 Scheme.
The intention of both exercises was to provide members who expect to be working for the NHS until age 65 the opportunity to move to a more flexible Scheme.

Although the Choice exercise remains open the Choice 2 exercise is now closed.
