Document I am not subject to Full Protection, what happens to my Mental Health Officer (MHO) status when I move into the 2015 scheme?

If you are not eligible for Full Protection you will move into the 2015 Scheme on or after the 1 April 2015 depending on whether you have Tapered Protection or no Protection.

On moving to the 2015 Scheme there will be no further accrual of MHO entitlement because there is no MHO provision in the 2015 Scheme.

However, provided you could have achieved at least 21 calendar years as an MHO by age 55, you will still benefit from the 'Uniform Accrual Formula' and you can still claim your 1995 Scheme pension without reduction, providing you remain in an MHO role.
