What type of statement you'll get

You'll get either a Total Reward Statement (TRS) or an Annual Benefit Statement (ABS).

The type of statement you'll get is based on your circumstances.

What TRS is 

TRS are available to NHS Pension Scheme members working in NHS organisations who use the electronic staff record system (ESR).

What you'll get

A TRS summarises an individual employee’s employment package, including:

  • basic pay
  • allowances
  • pension benefits for NHS Pension scheme members

Some NHS organisations also provide other benefits included in the statement, such as:

  • health and wellbeing programmes
  • learning and development
  • flexible working opportunities
  • childcare vouchers
  • cycle to work schemes

How to access your statement

You can access this online through 'ESR employee self-service' or 'GOV.UK Verify'.

What ABS is

ABS are available to NHS Pension scheme members working in:

  • approved non-NHS organisations
  • smaller NHS organisations, such as GP practices
  • NHS organisations who do not use ESR

What you'll get

An ABS will provide a pension statement for NHS Pension Scheme members

How to access your statement

You can access this online through 'GOV.UK Verify'.


Additional information

Retirement age

If you are a scheme transition member and have Special Class or MHO status with entitlement to retire at age 55, this will not be shown on your ABS.

Your retirement age will show as 60 in the 1995 Section. It does not mean you have lost your status. The correct retirement age will be used when you retire.

Scheme pays

If you have an election for scheme pays then this deduction is not considered in your ABS.
