Your Superannuation Division (SD number), or NHS Pension Scheme reference number; begins with SD followed by eight digits.

Your SD number can be found on your NHS Total Reward Statement, or any correspondence we have issued which is personal to you.

Your SD number can sometimes be on your payslip if your employer uses ESR (Electronic Staff Record).

If you started contributing to the NHS Pension Scheme before April 2016 the first two digits in your SD number will be the last two numbers from your year of birth. For example, Joe was born in 1959, therefore his SD number begins with 59. From April 2016 we stopped using the year of birth in SD numbers so any new member will be allocated the next available number in sequence.
