Clinical excellence awards and protection of pay

In the event of a change to the pensionable status of CEAs, we anticipate that the existing 'protection of pay' facility will continue to apply, as it currently does, to enable members to protect the value of accrued final salary benefits in the 1995 or 2008 sections.

Pension contributions already paid on CEA’s will not be lost and may not be refunded.

NHS Pensions has issued guidance on the way the 'protection of pay' facility currently operates. Read the guidance here.
