Q: I am 62, a full-time salaried GP and have been employed by my PCT for the last six years. Before that I worked for 14 years in NHS hospitals before that for 10 years as a private consultant in India.
I have also been buying NHS Pension Scheme added years for the last eight years.
I am also doing two ad hoc sessions for the PCT every week and not contributing for these to my NHS pension. If I contribute for these extra sessions in one of my last three years before I retire at 65, will it benefit my pension? Does the final year salary count from the last tax year or from the last birthday?
