Staff currently on NHS pension schemes should be able to retain their NHS pension (subject to NHS pensions final determination process). The process of application for NHS Pensions can take 3 months and we are escalating this due to the short time scales to reduce any impact on staff. Staff currently on teachers pensions will have their teachers pensions transferred. However, staff on Virgin Care pensions will no longer be able to continue their Virgin Care pension but will be automatically enrolled in the DCC pension scheme. Staff that are currently not in a pension scheme will automatically be enrolled within the LGPS. If they do not wish to enrol in the pension scheme they will have to opt out. You can find details of DCCs pension here.
