    NHS Pension, should i join? 21st Jan 12 at 9:54 AM
    Hi everyone,
    I am due to start a new job in a couple of months working for the NHS, i have had a book come through the post today about the NHS pension scheme, i have had a look but it still does not make sense!!
    What i can gather is that i will be opted in and pay 5% of my wages into it each month. I dont currently have any pension schemes in place and i dont own any property.
    I am looking to stay working for the NHS and i am just looking for a bit of advice, do i stay at the 5%, or maybe put in a bit more and is the scheme worth paying into to? I am 31 and have nothing in place at the moment.
