Document What are the time limits when applying for Additional Pension?

You must give your AP1 application form to your employer within 6 weeks of your application date or before your next birthday if that is earlier. Your 'application date' is the date your employer receives your application form. Once your employer receives your AP1 application form, they should forward this to NHS Pensions for consideration. NHS Pensions will then consider your application and aim to respond within 4 weeks.

If your application is accepted and you are paying by a one off lump sum, an AP3 acceptance letter will be sent to both you and your employer. You have one month from the issue of the AP3 to pay the lump sum amount to your employer, otherwise the application will be rejected. Your employer will be instructed to email nhsbsa.apconfirmpayment@nhs.net within one month of the AP3 acceptance letter being issued, to confirm when the payment has been received. If your employer does not send this email confirmation, your application will be rejected.

If your application is accepted and you are paying by monthly instalments, an AP4 acceptance letter will be sent to both you and your employer for monthly payments to begin.

If your application is rejected, an AP5 rejection letter will be sent to both you and your employer to confirm that the Additional Pension application has been rejected.
