Document I am entitled to Tapered Protection, can I lose this?

Yes. If you have tapered protection to a set date and have a break of more than five years then your benefits will become deferred, if you return to NHS pensionable employment you will join under the 2015 scheme.

If you have a break of less than five years you will re-join the original section of the scheme you were part of before your break for the duration of your Tapered Protection.
