    Hi Clapton, I agree with you, I have been in it for the past 11 years and wouldn't dream of giving it up. However, she is 19, desperate for money and will think about starting a new pension in the future.

    Thanks.

    Hi

    I used to work for the NHS. I contributed for less than 2 years. The rebate took about 4 weeks to go through in my case. I doubt you will be waiting longer than that. Good luck.

    They will take off money to buy you back into the state second pension and also to repay tax relief.

    Mr Falling Star
    Can I ask a question, I worked for the NHS for a few months and have a refund form to get the money back. A friend of mine is in the same position and he is adamant you get the contributions you made plus what the NHS made refunded to you. This does not make any sense to me, I thought you should only get back what you made??

    You only get to keep the NHS contributions if you transfer it to another pension, not if you take the cash refund

    you get the refund (your contributions only - less tax remember)

    NHS Pension Query
    Whats is the tax rate on a pension refund? and are they any fee's for releasing?

    I recently joined the NHS (within 2 years) and transferred a small pension of 3,000 from Standard Life who advised me under no circumstances I could cash in my pension before I turned 55 (I'm 26 now).

    I understand that I can opt out of my NHS pension and cash in the amount I have inputted but at what cost?

    I want to keep my NHS pension or at least join back at a later date as I know it's one of the best pensions around but I could really do with releasing the amount I transferred in so I can fund my own career development in the short time which means improved salary and improved pension contributions in the long term.

    Any advice?
