NEWS - RCN launches new pensions forecaster
09 02 2012 | Frontline First team
The Royal College of Nursing has today launched a new tool that may help RCN members decide which way they wish to vote on the Government’s NHS pensions proposals.
The pensions forecaster will help members understand the Government’s complex plans which could affect members of the scheme in different ways.
The forecaster shows nursing staff how much they might pay in contributions, when they may reach normal pension age and how much they should expect to receive upon retirement, if the proposals are implemented.
All RCN members, except those who have already retired, should have received their voting papers. If you haven't received your voting paper yet, please telephone RCN Direct on 0345 772 6100.
Find out more about the pensions vote which closes on 27 February.
For RCN members who want to see how the value of their pension may be affected should they wish to retire either before or after their normal pension age under the new proposals, go to the RCN Frontline First website.
