Salaried GPs & Assistant GPs

As a Salaried or Assistant GP, you will need to complete a Type 2 Self-Assessment of Tiered Contributions for each financial year, so that NHS England and NHS Improvement can ensure that all NHS pension contributions have been correctly paid, by yourself and your employers, and allocated correctly to your NHS Pension Scheme record. You must  submit your 2019/20 Type 2 Medical Practitioner Self-Assessment form by 28 February each year.

It is a condition of that a GP must proactively liaise with relevant NHS organisations to ensure they have paid the correct tiered contributions ‘across the board’. Failure to comply with the NHS Pension Scheme Regulations may result in pensionable pay provisionally set to zero for the relevant period. It is a legal requirement for GPs to complete and submit the self-assessment form each year.

From 1 June, you will be able to submit Type 2 Self-Assessment of Tiered Contributions via PCSE Online.
