Dentistry Bodcast – the NHS pension discrimination

NHS pensionMichael Copeland discusses the NHS pension discrimination case and what you need to consider to keep your retirement plans on track.

Sometimes referred to as the McCloud judgement, the NHS pension age discrimination case is something that will impact you as a dentist when it comes to looking ahead and planning your pension. 

The judgement impacts all pension scheme members, including those in the NHS scheme, who were in service before 31 March 2012, or after 1 April 2015.

Despite it having been a hot topic in the industry for quite a while now, there are some dentists out there who still aren’t aware of how it all works and how it will impact them.
