Document Can I purchase Additional Pension by lump sum if I am due to leave employment soon?

As long as the date on your AP1 application form is not after you have left employment or retired, it is possible to purchase Additional Pension by lump sum even if you are due to leave employment soon. In this circumstance, NHS Pensions can accept the payment for your Additional Pension after you have left NHS employment or retired.

Please note: any claim for retirement benefits will not be processed until either the Additional Pension payment has been made, or the time limit has been exceeded and the application rejected
