Annual Benefit Statement
NHS Pensions refresh Total Reward Statements (TRS) and Annual Benefit Statements (ABS) in August each year. For more information please visit the NHS Pensions website at www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/total-reward-statements.
Why isn’t my TRS up to date?
When the December ABS is launched, GPs should be able to see their latest statement if the following criteria have been met:
Pension records can only be updated sequentially. This means that, if any certificates from previous years are missing, the most recent years will not show on the system. For instance, if a certificate is missing for the year 2015/16 then the ABS will only reflect the pension figures up until 2015, even if the certificates for more recent years have been submitted. Therefore if you are aware of any previous years are missing certificates, please submit the appropriate form for the missing year.
Once the missing certificates are submitted correctly and processed then this will update the system fully for the next ABS release. You can also request a pension’s statement at any time directly from NHS Pensions. More information can be found on their website https://www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/member-hub/getting-estimate-your-pension
Why is my TRS blank?
If your TRS appears to be blank, members are advised to contact the NHS Pensions TRS team on 0300 3301 351 or email email@example.com so they can look at individual circumstances. ABS statements cannot be provided by PCSE.
