“BMA to sue government over NHS pension scheme age discrimination”

According to GP Online “GPs who lost out financially from changes to the NHS pension scheme in 2015 have been backed by the BMA to bring age discrimination claims against the government.    

“When the 2015 NHS pension scheme took effect, doctors within 10 years of their normal pension age on 1 April 2012 did not have to join the new pension scheme.

Doctors between 10 and 13.5 years of their normal pension age on 1 April 2012 benefited from 'tapering protection', with their date for joining the new scheme delayed, while pension scheme members more than 13.5 years from their normal pension age on 1 April 2012 were obliged to join the scheme from 1 April 2015.”

“The BMA says that younger doctors who were forced to join the 2015 NHS pension scheme were discriminated against because some older doctors were allowed to retain greater benefits from previous pension schemes as part of a transitional deal.”   Read more
