Document Will I pay tax or National Insurance contributions from my pension?

For tax purposes, your pension benefits are treated as earned income and are taxed at source, before being paid to you. Initially NHS Pensions will deduct tax under a temporary code until we are given the correct code from the HMRC, who will determine what your tax code should be. If you want to query your tax code, please contact HMRC on 0300 200 3300 (or 0044 135 535 9022 if you are overseas).

If tax has been deducted from your pension, NHS Pensions will send you a P60 form after the end of each tax year to show the total pension paid and the amount of tax deducted in that year.
Please note: there are no National Insurance contributions deducted from your NHS pension.
