This new interactive policy paper looks at the wider rules of the Teachers’ and NHS pension schemes and how members can claim their benefits.

In the paper, Royal London's Senior Pension Development and Technical Manager, Moira Warner, explores how evolution of these schemes have left many members with multiple tranches of final salary and career average benefits. And aims to help advisers understand the relevant scheme’s rules on issues such as:

  • Whether final salary and career average benefits must be taken together
  • The rules that apply if a client returns to work following retirement
