If you change your mind about the amount of lump sum that you have indicated on your application you may be able to amend this, but it would depend on the status of your award. In order to do this you must contact NHS Pensions to request a change to your lump sum within one month of receiving the award letter.

Consideration is given to extenuating circumstances where someone could not reasonably access their award letter within this one month period.

If it is before that date and you wish to amend your choice please contact our member helpline on 0300 330 1346 to discuss this further.
