Author Topic: NHS Pension - does it stop you contributing to private pensions  (Read 96 times)

I am contributing to a private pension plan, and intend to do so for a few years.
I read that once you access pension funds you cannot continue to get tax relief on contributions.

I have a tiny amount in the NHS pension scheme, and have been invited to start drawing it at age 60.
Will this trigger the non-availability of the tax relief? I suspect it will do so.

You need to get professional advice I'm afraid.  The rules around NHS pensions and their interactions with tax allowances, other pensions etc. changed last year (due to loss of consultants).  It's now very messy and complicated.

Thanks Regulator. That makes sense. I am starting an engagement with a (paid for) advisor.
