NHS pension scheme’s death in service benefit guide for sessional GPs (sessional, salaried and freelance locum).
Q: I work as a locum GP and am concerned about terms and conditions and pension arrangements, including death in service benefits, whilst working during the COVID-19 crisis situations. Do you have any information that you can share on this?
A: Dr Krishan Aggarwal, Vice Chair, Kensington, Chelsea and Westminster LMC, has produced a mini guide on the Death in Service Benefit (DiS) within the NHS scheme. This covers what DiS offers, what locums receive when not in service and three workarounds for locums in order to be able to achieve DiS benefit.
