Document If I am working for a Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), is my income pensionable?

If you work for a CCG they are legally required to ensure that  your income is pensionable if you are eligible to be a Scheme member.

If you are formally employed under a contract of service you will be classed as an officer for pension purposes; this also applies if you are a doctor/GP. Your CCG is responsible for collecting  your pension contributions and updating your pension record.

If you are self employed under a contract for services arrangement  you can only pension your income if you are a qualified GP. You must complete the GP SOLO form unless you agree to have your fees (including the 14% employer contributions) paid directly into your practice/surgery account.

For more information please see the Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) factsheet on the NHS Pensions website.
