Document Can a children's pension be re-instated if the dependant child returns to full-time education?

Yes, NHS Pensions will consider re-instating a children's pension if the dependent child is under age 23 and is returning to full-time education. Please send evidence of the child's return to full time education to NHS Pensions at the following address:

NHS Pensions
PO Box 2269

NHS Pensions may write to the child's school, college or university to request confirmation that the child has returned to education.

Please note: the option to re-instate a children's pension typically only applies when the scheme member that the pension is being paid on behalf of did not have pensionable service after April 2008. If the scheme member did have service after April 2008, then a children's pension is payable up to age 23, regardless of whether they are in education, providing the child was dependent on the member at the date of their death.
