As agreed with NHS England, PCSE is processing pension documentation in the following order:
We will email you to confirm when your document has been processed and updated on Pensions Online. Once you have received confirmation, and assuming there are no gaps in documentation in your pension record, the information will be visible on your next Total Reward Statement (TRS) issued by NHS Pensions.
Please note that Total Reward Statements are not a live system and updates are only made in August and December when the new statements are released by NHS Pensions.
We aim to respond to all submissions/queries within 30 working days. However, please be advised that due to end of year pension administration, the GP Pensions team is currently working through a high volume of document submissions and queries and response times are currently longer than usual.
In the meantime, you may find that the answer to your query can be found in these frequently asked questions.
