Document What date will be my last day of service if I am an active member looking to take my NHS Pension?

If you are a dentist who is currently contributing to the NHS Pension and want to claim your pension your last day of service will usually would be the day before your pension is due to be paid.

For example, if you turn 60 on 01/04/2019 and want to take your pension from this date, your last day of service and the date that would be used on any NHS contract’s you are currently attached to would be 31/03/2019.

The last day of service could differ if you have reached maximum service or opt out of the scheme before taking your pension. If this applies to you please contact the NHS Pensions helpline on 0300 330 1346 for further advice.
