    NHS pension 7th Feb 18 at 12:58 AM
    Would I have made contributions to a NHS pension from 1985-2000, when I worked part time?

    Probably, but no one here will know for sure.

    Call the NHS pensions team, with your NI number to hand, and they will be able to tell you.

    Thank you.
    I have contacted them and they say that they cannot find any contributions before 1992, which seems odd to me.

    I haven't looked up historic NHS scheme rules specifically, but in general part timers were not traditionally eligible for final salary schemes (including public sector ones) until a European ruling in the early 90s changed covering legislation to force them to be.

    I worked part time in the late 80 s and early 90 s and remember not being allowed to join the pension scheme unless you were full time.

    When the EU regulations came in the company we worked for offered us to either make the payments for the missed years when part time or you could have an amount of compensation

    At the time I never envisaged working for the company for any length of time so took the money, 25 years later I realised the error that I had made

    If I!!!8217;m right: The enrolment in NHS pension was not compulsory then hence you may not have been in the scheme unless you asked to join !
