Your NHS Scotland pension scheme

There are currently two occupational pension schemes for National Health Service staff in Scotland: the National Health Service Superannuation Scheme (Scotland) and National Health Service Pension Scheme (Scotland) 2015.

These schemes are administered by the Scottish Public Pensions Agency on behalf of Scottish Ministers and SPPA is also responsible for scheme regulations and for all the administrative tasks required to serve over 175,000 active members, more than 62,000 deferred members and over 100,000 NHS pensioners and dependants who are already receiving benefits from the scheme.

Both schemes are statutory and guaranteed by law, providing pensions and life assurance for people employed by the NHS in Scotland.
