Document What happens when a Special Class member reaches 45 years service after age 60 but before 65?

If you achieve 45 years pensionable membership after age 60 but before age 65 you must stop paying pension contributions. Your NHS employer should close down your pension record from date that you reach 45 years pensionable membership.

When your pension is calculated the Total Pensionable Pay (TPP) figure used to calculate your benefits will be established from the three years prior to the date that you reached 45 years pensionable membership.

Although you are no longer contributing to the scheme you will still maintain an entitlement to death in service benefits for your dependants.
